Like competence and charisma, a strong communicator recognizes that character impacts an audience’s perception of them. It’s an important component, especially if your audience doesn’t know you very well.

How’s your character level?

  • Are you honest and open?
  • Do you know how true, fair & competent the information you are communicating is?
  • Do you have the listener’s best interest in mind? 
  • Do you have an understanding of other values & traditions? 

After answering these questions, you may be wondering how you can create a perception of trust with your audience who may or may not know your character.

These 3 qualities will help you to build and define your character with others:

  1. Fairness. Show your impartiality by being truthful and delivering accurate information. Make sure you convey that your sources are solid and trustworthy.
  2. Respect.  Refrain from arrogance. An audience who perceives you as a know-it-all will immediately question or deny your credibility and may find you untrustworthy. Showing respect earns trust.
  3. Understanding. Know your audience and understand their needs. If you’re too radical, innovative or overlook their traditions, trust will be lacking. Showing them that you understand their values will demonstrate fairness on your part and will evoke trust.
