By Rich Drinon Credit and credibility come from the same roots. When you have credibility with others you’ve most likely established credit you may need to use during challenging, chaotic or crisis driven times.
Words like reputation, integrity and trustworthiness all tie into your perceived credibility as a leader and how much credit you might have in the bank with constituents when the time comes to make a debit.
One thing followers most want from their leaders today is credibility. For this reason I’ve chosen Guard Your Credibility as Rich’s Rule # 4.
