Whether you are working on maximising your brand awareness or developing your own personal brand; credibility and authority are two fundamental aspects of your journey.

In order to achieve your branding goals, you may want to look at 5 attributes that would make you likeable and trustworthy:

  • funny
  • creative
  • friendly
  • collaborative
  • engaging

When people trust you and like you; they are prepared to listen to you and take your advice. Your journey doesn’t end there when people are ready to listen to you and take up your advice; you are now a thought leader with heavy responsibilities on your shoulders:

  • educate more people
  • learn from more people
  • maintain the trust and credibility you’ve earned
  • show respect to other thought leaders, including those with different opinions to yours
  • be tolerant and humbler than ever

At the end, it is your personality that attracts people towards you; and open doors for more opportunities.

The key to get to this stage is clarity of communications; honesty and transparency.
