John Maxwell says that the number one responsibility of a leader is to earn trust with his or her people. Trust is an attitude that allows people to rely on, have confidence in, and feel sure about people and things. This week on The John Maxwell Leadership Podcast, we’re starting a new series called “Earning Trust,” in which you’ll learn seven keys to gaining the confidence of your team.

Part one covers the first two keys. John shares the importance of consistency and accurate, open communication. He begins with these two points because they establish a foundation of confidence and security.   

Our BONUS resource for this series is the Earning Trust Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by visiting and clicking “Download the Bonus Resource.”
