Building and Extending Trust

Building and Extending Trust

October 4, 2018

The conversation today will explore some aspects of building trust in the workplace. We'll use an acronym for TRUST to help you understand the building process of trust. We address broken trust and how to repair it, as well as looking at ways you can extend trust to people you may not know.  

Overall points include:

  • Check yourself first
  • The importance of the pause
  • If you behave in a way that damages trust, you need to behave your way back. Just talking won’t work
  • Using the "Trust" acronym throughout your work day

We hope this podcast episode brings value to you. Enjoy!
