Credibility is very easy to lose but takes work to build and maintain. Why? Because credibility withdrawals for unfavorable behaviors are often greater in magnitude than the deposits for favorable behaviors. Here are 15 things that will quickly deplete your credibility bank and subsequently chip away at your leadership influence.
1. Having insufficient knowledge
3. Careless research
4. Inaccurate information
5. Outdated data
6. Lack of follow-through
7. Empty/broken promises
11. Lack of authenticity
Many of these credibility destroyers can be avoided or the behaviors can be changed. Contact us to learn how a coach can help you identify areas for improvement and create a plan for leadership growth and development!
