Building Trust

How do you foster trust?

  • Own your contribution to an issue / mistake.
  • Do what you are responsible for as best as you can.
  • Acknowledge and leverage the strengths of those you work with.
  • When issues arise / mistakes happen and are acknowledged, course correct.
  • When unsure about something said or done by another person, go to them first to discuss (being curious without blaming can be very effective).
  • Hire leaders who possess and know how to identify high integrity in others / Do not accept leaders who break integrity.
  • Be truthful (this does not mean “brutally honest” but delivering and communicating with “accuracy and rightness”).
