Your trustworthiness is your most powerful asset — both in business and in life.
Think about it.
What are the gains you experience when people trust you? What can you count on when your trustworthiness isn’t in doubt?
Might it be that people talk with you…instead of about you? Might they seek out your opinion and guidance? Or come directly to you when they make a mistake or fear letting you down, because they know you’ll offer compassion and understanding?
Here’s the bottom line: People want to forge – and sustain – relationships with people they trust.
Yet, trust is fragile. It’s easily broken, and can be hard to rebuild. You and others don’t mean to break one another’s trust. I don’t mean to break others’ trust. Yet we all do it, unconsciously and unintentionally.
In the last 25 years, I’ve worked with people all over the world. We’ve been in the trenches together, rolling up our sleeves together, going to work on trust. The most critical thing I’ve learned in this work?
90% of the time people break one another’s trust, they aren’t even aware they’ve done so.
Which is why Michelle and I have created our new Trust Quiz. We wanted to give you a tool to help you discover the ways you may be unknowingly impacting trust in the relationships that matter most to you.
Use this tool. It’s on us! It’s free! In just 60 seconds, you’ll get insight into specific behaviors you already practice that build trust, and the behaviors that will be game-changing for your relationships. You’ll get several tips and strategies to immediately take action and strengthen trust – all through integrating small trust building actions into the rhythm of your day.
I’d love for you to use this free tool. It’s brand new – we just launched it last week, and the feedback we’re getting is exhilarating:
[A bit of context: This quiz is an informal, thumbnail sketch version of our statistically reliable and valid trust assessments. Our assessments are backed by our nearly 25 years of trust-focused research and worldwide consulting experience. So I have a lot of confidence you’re going to get value from this quiz.]
“Absolutely loved the trust quiz….so cool! It helps provide insight into how to bring trust to life through your behavior and provide “meat” as to what trust really means.”
