Inspiring Trust

leave a comment »

I came across this very interesting article entitled – Trust Me

These were noteworthy (applies both in the personal and business realms, I think):

Ethical (moral, honest,fair) does not equate to trust!!

“Because trust is largely about relationships, communication is critical. Communication is also the vehicle through which the other four elements of trustworthiness are delivered. The ability to align interests, demonstrate benevolence, accurately communicate one’s capabilities and practice what you preach all require effective communication skills.

Spirals of distrust often begin with miscommunication, leading to perceived betrayal, causing further impoverishment of communication, and ending in a state of chronic distrust. Clear and transparent communication encourages the same from others and leads to confidence in a relationship.”

I can personally attest to the importance of communicating often and openly. My involvement in a venture with a bunch of others did not come to fruition because some in the group did not deem it important to translate their assumptions into an open dialogue, leading to perceptions of lack of transparency. Open communication is a very effective tool in aligning interests. Make good use of it.
