Trust in Leaders

What makes a leader worthy of our trust and what should we also hold ourselves to?

Diana Chapman Walsh, president emeritus of Wellesley College and an exemplar of courage and integrity, talks about five attributes of trustworthy leadership needed for this time of complexity. When embodied, these capacities help us bring our full selves into our work.

1) Question ourselves.

2) Develop and attend to solid partnerships.

3) Avoid the use of force except as a last resort.

4) Value differences not only as a mark of respect but as a source of creative information.

5) Create a community.
