Powerful Communication Strategies To Increase Trust As a Leader

  1. Keep your camera on in meetings. Yes, this simple act will probably increase the trust factor dramatically. That’s because research has demonstrated that 65% of the population is predominantly visual. They take visual cues to process information. Looking at your face, looking at your facial expressions will help them get a better sense of who you are.
  2. You may have already heard the phrase — “It’s not what you say, but how you say it”. This is in alignment with the fact that 38% of communication happens through tone of voice and modulation. . In my line of work, I am often calling my clients on their limiting beliefs or BS rules that often keep them stuck. I rely on my tone of voice to communicate information that could possibly make people defensive. If I didn’t follow this principle while saying something difficult, I will lose the opportunity to change their limitations, won’t I? So, let me ask you — will your team be able trust you if you were not mindful of this powerful communication strategy?
  3. How well do you listen? Have you fully considered the impact of listening? How do you feel when the person you’re talking to is very attentive? You feel good, don’t you? You feel valued, don’t you? Research has shown that employees who feel valued are more likely to perform better.
