As I engage professionals from various industries in my field of work, I began to realise that all of them have asked this question at some point in their career: "How do I influence my boss?"
Credible leaders establish psychological contracts with their communities and teams, bound by shared values. These contracts are more concrete than words of any legal and binding document. They build trust, commitment and loyalty to the leader in good and challenging times. Leaders who lack credibility break psychological contracts with their people and will not have loyal followers, let alone inspired ones.
