This week’s 1st Power Word makes relationships work…TRUST!
TRUST is a many faceted concept.
I trust my wife with my life, but I don’t trust my wife if I have to go under the knife to save my life.
For that I would use a specialized surgeon.
Even though I don’t have much of a relationship with the surgeon I TRUST he/she has the skills,knowledge and motivation to do the job effectively.
My wife may have the motivation but certainly not the skills and knowledge.
In leadership and workplace issues I believe we should define TRUST in the following manner:
TRUST is the absolute belief that you have my (or our organization’s) best interests at heart, and that you will do what you say you will do.
