Trust is the foundation that a leader must build upon when it comes to their followers. There are three qualities that a leader must exemplify in order to be able to effectively build trust they are competence, connection, and character. As a leader your followers may be able to forgive occasional mistakes that may be based on ability, especially if they can see that you are still in the process of growing as a leader, but as followers they will not continue to trust someone who has slips in their character this could lead to very lethal problems. All effective leaders know that this is true.
