This week’s 1st Power Word is about trust, “CONGRUENT!”
CONGRUENT is one of my favorite words and personal and professional values.
Dictionary.com uses the word “congruous,” to define CONGRUENT. In looking up the definition of “congruous,” I found the phrase “exhibiting harmony of parts.”
That reinforces why I like the word CONGRUENT so much.
I believe its important for leaders, who expect the respect and follow through of the people they lead, to lead congruently.
To me, this means “walking your talk,” and being a role model for the expected behavior and performance. When a leader leads in this manner they will be “exhibiting a harmony of parts” and acting consistent with expectations, their own, and building the trust of others.
’til next time,
