How can leaders foster credibility within them?

Credible leaders make a decision and stand firm on that decision. In a nutshell, credible leaders are relatively predictable. They are transparent and honest to their people.

He is a responsive leader. Leaders are judged credible when their words match their behavior and if people doesn't see the steadiness in your words Vis a Vis your actions, you will be charged as someone not really serious or worst is, a hypocrite.

Credible leaders are the followers of their own rules. Credibility has got to be embedded in every leaders mind. If a leader doesn't possess credibility, they will find it very difficult to put forth power, influence and inspiration to others

Credibility means that whatever a person says, he believes in it. This is only possible when one speaks truth and only truth.

Credibility of a leader plays significant part in making him an effective leader.

Credible leaders cannot be produced by educating and training the present leaders through modern management development programmes.

In everyday life, each one of us has to assume the role of leader, whether in our homes or in the organizations where we work. We cannot hope to be accepted as credible leaders until we learn to speak truth, first of all, to our own selves, and then to others. Before asking others to do something or behave in a certain manner, it is prudent upon us to set our own example by behaving consistently. We cannot teach others the virtues of austerity and simplicity if our personal example belies our sermons. In order to achieve credibility, we would have to start from our own selves, rather from our thoughts.

If you are a leader right now, or if you're aspiring to become one remember being credible is really important.  It is most important ones. Your job is to develop all these qualities in order to become a credible leader
