For President Obama from an Executive Coach

Fourth in a series of observations....

4.Lead with trust: “If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists—to protect them and to promote their common welfare –all else is lost.”

You get what you give, so give trust to get it back from the American public. Be honest, competent, and caring, and trust will always follow you—you won’t ever have to seek it. With trust the government will move quickly, effectively, and efficiently. Without trust, progress will be lethargic, bureaucratic, and frustrating. Consider making the word “transparent” the hallmark of your administration. If people can see what they’re getting and get what they’re seeing, trust will happen and so will rapid progress.
