Video – Energizing Others – Create a Trustworthy Process


Lead off a discussion of the leadership competency Energize Others with this provocative three-minute video focused on creating a trustworthy process.


Leadership is about energizing other people. Energize Others means getting people to invest in something and work together to make progress on a difficult challenge. If you want to energize others, you need a process people can believe in that honors their values.

In this short video the KLC team challenges viewers to consider: “Have I been energizing others toward a common purpose? Have I created a process that allows people to engage and listen to one another? Or have I limited my leadership to pumping people up and coaxing them to move my way?”

Open your class or team meeting with this thought-provoking video. Then follow-up with questions such as:

  • What resonated with you in the video?
  • What’s the difference between “trusting everybody” and “creating a trustworthy process”?
  • With adaptive work, what makes a trustworthy process?
  • How would you begin to build a trustworthy process?

The video runs 3:12 minutes and features KLC CEO Ed O’Malley with Julia Fabris McBride and Shaun Rojas. It pairs well with the Create a Trustworthy Process activity sheet in our Energize Others activity packet and pages 124-131 in Your Leadership Edge: Create a Trustworthy Process.
