Trusting in leadership is a crucial component of success, but we can break trust into separate categories. Trust can be gained from team members seeing future leaders who have actively engaged in the SWAT process or making the right decisions. I do not think that all command leaders have to be SWAT operators, but if they are not I do think the must surround themselves with key leadership that will make them successful. Trust is earned every day, and it only takes one thing to lose it.
