After attaining a first class undergraduate degree in Applied Psychology from Kinnaird College, Lahore, Pakistan, I felt I should gain some practical experience and first-hand knowledge of what the life of a psychology degree holder entails.

From her time at UConn to her time now with the Celtics, Taylor did as much as she could, and worked hard at everything she did as well. Companies and organizations value experience, especially if you have a lot of it.

But other people want to get out there and start actually working after they complete their undergraduate degree, focusing on more of the real life applications of what they learned in school, and that is what Taylor did.
In order to inspire and motivate people, trusted leaders that take up managerial positions achieve higher levels of relationship among followers because they articulate a vision (inspirational motivation), show a special concern for people (individualised consideration), and provide a role model for ethical behaviour (idealised influence), among others. Furthermore, they are equipped with knowledge of the environment in which the organization is operating and are faced with very dynamic environments that demand new and appropriate styles of leadership. In conclusion, building trust in leadership is an integrated process that demands gaining knowledge in aspects of trusted leadership, positive identification and application of tools of trusted leaders, analysis of how trusted leaders work, and building trust in perspective. The three dominant concepts learned from the assigned readings that include trust as the foundation of leadership involves the willingness to be vulnerable, ability to gain knowledge and creative thinking and integrate both personal and organizational trust draw with the ability to cultivate faith and entrench learning as part of organizational culture.
