Gaining the trust of your audience is one of the greatest challenges of leading. Darrell Williams, former Communications Response and Officer for the White House, teaches us that our credentials, while meaningful and noteworthy, don’t necessarily earn us respect from others–but getting to know people and showing them that we care for them will. In this episode, we learn how to maximize our gifts by being humble. Consider, what are the needs of my community, and how can I meet one of those needs? Start with small steps and become a model for others. Then, find a genuine connection with others, and offer your gifts to them without arrogance or expectation. Williams helps people find their gifts and share them with others. He is currently the Chief, Military Human Resources for Operations at Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), as well as a keynote speaker and coach. Like this episode?
