332 Trust copy

What separates great leaders from good leaders?

What makes a manager, a preferred manager?

What makes an individual credible to others?

One common thread runs throughout – a great leader, manager and individual is one who can be trusted.

So, what is trust?  Trust is when you “rely on the integrity, strength or ability of another; have confidence in another”.  When you trust another person, you believe that they:

  1. Will always have your best interest at heart.
  2. Will never hurt you for the fun of it.
  3. Will never sell you out for selfish gain.

Living among a different culture has reinforced for me how big a deal trust is.  There are continual reminders for me, living in a new country that trust

  • will always involve a degree of vulnerability,
  • is something that must be earned, built and maintained, 
  • requires time to develop.

No matter where you live or what you do, trust will be the key to you

  • contributing to a successful workplace,
  • generating a strong customer base,
  • building a prosperous business and
  • creating strong, secure relationships.

So, never underestimate the power of trust.  Trust in any relationship will

  • bring with it an inner sense of peace
  • guide us to a more positive state of mind.
  • give us a deeper sense of bonding with others
  • contribute to increased self-confidence
  • provide new zeal to stand up to life’s challenges.

Simply put the element of trust, between yourself and other people, will affect your entire life.

So a question for you today, who do you trust?  

Or, perhaps, more importantly who trusts you?

Food for thought.
