CREDIBILITY: Maintain authority

CREDIBILITY: Establish authority.

People who are sharing something they believe in but have not been/are not directly at the source or have no relevant training on the subject must first establish credibility. Thus, they often open their speeches, writings, and teachings with an explanation of why they are speaking on this topic.

Good leaders understand that in order to be convincing, they must first establish credibility.

Questions I ask myself to test someone’s credibility aimed at building credibility:

  1. Is the person trying to establish credibility the right source for my interest or needs?
  2. What specific experience or qualifications does this person have to speak or teach on the topic?
  3. Can I trust this person based on their background, experiences and knowledge?
