Trusted and Trustworthy

Being trusted and being trustworthy are two different characteristics.

If a leader is trusted but not trustworthy, you’re looking at a con in the making.

If a leader is trustworthy but not trusted, they’ll be overlooked. 

To that end, you need to build up a reputation of both being trustworthy as well as being trusted, and that’s when you have both the responsibility and the right to power.
