To be a Transformative Leader one must exhibit strength in two very important character areas, trust, and transparency. One’s ability to grow and allow others to grow depends wholly on the results of both of these characteristics.
Trust is one cornerstone:
The first characteristic is Trust. As a noun, it is defined as a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. For example, “relations have to be built on trust”
Synonyms for trust can be confidence, belief, faith, certainty, assurance, conviction, credence
Legally, it is defined as, confidence placed in a person by making that person the nominal owner of property to be held or used for the benefit of one or more others.
As a verb, trust is defined: to believe in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of. For example, “I should have trusted that data from the beginning.”
