There is nothing worse than going into work and not knowing what to expect from a manager, a person in a position of leadership.
I don’t know if you’ve had that experience, but it’s something that I have had happen in my career, and it doesn’t make us feel very comfortable because we don’t know what to expect. What kind of mood is that person gonna be in? How do they operate, are they operating consistently?
Now, when we use the word consistency, I’m thinking of that in a positive way. So everything they do, there is a level on consistency. Not necessarily predictability, but a leader, a manager is demonstrating that they are dependable; that, again, they can be trusted; that their words match their actions, and you do know what to expect from that person.
You do know that you’re gonna be supported, you know that you’re gonna be trusted to do what you need to do. So, remember as a leader that when you can genuinely display consistency in everything you do, it goes hand in hand with being an authentic leader.
