Leadership Reputation

"It can take 20 years to build a good reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about it that way, you will do things differently."~ Warren Buffet

A 2010 study by CLC showed that "senior leader reputation can drive employee commitment by as much as 41%." A solid Leadership Reputation has an extraordinary effect on the amount of trust, credibility, respect, and ultimately on the influence one has with others, regardless of their title, role, or responsibility. This influence allows them to do more with less and to do it with more speed, efficiency and support. This is precisely what is required to ensure people follow their lead through periods of complexity, change and uncertainty that is increasingly becoming the reality of today.

This is never more evident than when we consider a leader with a negative or low-standing reputation, such as being thought of as dictatorial, self-centric, controlling and overbearing, or untrustworthy. Instead of an asset, this negative reputation places a hidden "tax" on every transaction they engage in - every conversation, decision, suggestion, or request they make. The associated cost of this tax is that people will take more time and energy to assess and evaluate the situation and request before taking action, differently than if it came from a leader with a good reputation.
