Higher Level of Trust

Trust can be slow to develop and easy to lose, but once a group has it in place, it’s worth holding onto with great might. Trust can be maintained through a few key behaviors. Some of these we have already mentioned, but this is important enough to say again:

  • Be honest. Say what’s on your mind and be sure to say what you’ll do and do what you say.

  • Don’t engage in hallway chatter about your group members. If an issue must be discussed, do it in your meeting. Backbiting is one of the great destroyers of trust.

  • Trust the other people in your group. Trust is a two-way street.

  • Give people the benefit of the doubt. If you are going to jump to a conclusion, why make it a negative one? People make mistakes and they aren’t all directed at you. Ask questions to understand when things don’t appear as they should. Invest in everyone’s success.
