Destroying Trust

Here are a few ways that trust can be eroded:

  • Sugar coating information.
  • Discounting skills and talents of those you work with.
  • Blaming others when something does not go as planned.
  • Speaking negatively about others when they are not around.
  • Keeping pertinent information to oneself vs. sharing broadly.
  • Breaking commitments without early and clear explanations. 
  • Making presumptions about others without sincerely listening to them.
  • Being focused on winning at all costs / being determined to get even with someone.
  • Not recognizing when you are excluding someone / justifying when you exclude someone.
