Remember the game of trust fall? 
“Go ahead. Fall back and we will catch you!”

But you might have seen those Youtube videos of well-intended team members who fail the test and let someone crash to the ground. It’s humorous until you’re the victim of broken trust.

Research has shown that a few key behaviors contribute to whether or not others perceive you as being trustworthy.

Getting people and teams to work together begins with mutual trust. Before you ask for trust, you must first demonstrate your trust in them. Even if it put you at risk of disclosing:
  • What you stand for
  • What you value the most
  • What you hope for in the future
  • What you are willing and unwilling to do
As you develop your leadership, remember to lead with TRUST.

Here’s to being trustworthy!
