How credible are you?
Leadership may have to come in a different package. It’s got to be credible … Overall, it’s about credibility, walking the talk. – Anne Mulcahy, Chairman and CEO, XEROX
There are four factors that create credibility:
How credible are you?
Keep in mind, credibility is something we can do something about.
We can choose to increase the confidence and self-trust that flows from the inside out and affects every dimension of our lives – and the lives of others, too.
Self-trust is the first secret of success … the essence of heroism. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Core 1: Integrity
To many people “integrity” basically means “honesty”. However, it’s much more. It’s integratedness. It’s walking your talk. It’s being congruent, inside and out. It’s having the courage to act in accordance with the own values and beliefs.
Somebody once said that in looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if you don’t have the first, the other two will kill you. You think about it; it’s true. If you hire somebody without [integrity], you really want them to be dumb and lazy.
― Warren Buffett
Core 2: Intent
This has to do with our motives, our agendas and our resulting behavior.
Both integrity and intent are matters of character.
Core 3: Capabilities
These are the abilities we have that inspire confidence – our talents, attitudes, skills, knowledge and style. They are the means we use to produce results.
People of capability inspire us. – Samaveda (Sacred Hindu Text)
Core 4: Results
This refers to our track record, our performance, our getting the right things done.
Both capabilities and results are matters of competence.
