We Can’t Find a Single Thing to Mock in Mark Weinberger’s LinkedIn Debut

Trust us, we looked.

We humbly present the first part of Three Critical Skills Today’s Leaders Need:

Which of the following factors can render your business model obsolete almost overnight?

a) Geopolitical issues
b) Macroeconomic volatility
c) Disruptive technologies
d) Government intervention
e) All of the above

If you answered “e,” you’re on to something. But there’s one skill that, if a business leader can master it, can help hedge against all of these: building trust.

Plainly put, people find it very difficult to trust business leaders. Recent surveys show that CEOs still rank near the bottom of the list of trustworthy job titles.

We can – and must – do better. As leaders, we all need to work harder at building trust and confidence in business.

OK, well he could have skipped mentioning "distuptive technologies" (again, anyone have any idea what that is exactly?) but he's right. Without trust, we have nothing.

Doing one better, he goes on to explain how business leaders can build trust — a refreshing departure from most corporatespeak that tells other corporate robots what they should do but leaves out the helpful part about how to do it.

Really, not bad at all. Nice work, bro, you should give whoever wrote that for you a nice bonus.
