Trust: Exercise authority fairly, consistently to everyone

From Best Practices
Jump to: navigation, search

Fairness does not mean making everyone happy. Demonstration of well-thought-out and fair decisions allows for trust in the process even when leadership decisions are difficult to accept. Be consistent in your behavior with others. Acknowledge individual circumstances but be consistent in your treatment of others. Do not play favorites. If your behavior ever appears inconsistent, explain your rationale.
