If you want to build a secure community, you must have a foundation of trust. Trust is the language, currency, and fuel that powers security. Building trust begins with leaders whom you can trust. These leaders must not only inspire people to act, but also cultivate trust among the entire community. Because, inside high-trust environments people are naturally inclined to do the right things and follow security protocols.
Servant Leadership is a management concept that has been around for decades. It is a philosophical approach to management that not only makes organizations work better, it makes them significantly more secure. It accomplishes this through building high-trust relationships with employees which in turn fosters better security.
