One thing I know for sure is that TRUST is the number one quality you have to have to succeed not just in business, but in life. YOU NEED TO BE TRUSTED AND TO BE ABLE TO TRUST OTHERS. Check yourselves out occasionally as to whether you are to be trusted. A few times I hear people out there in the world saying “well I told a little white lie”…..White lies get found out the same way real lies do.
People will talk about you, you won’t even know these conversations are happening …SO it all starts with YOU.
I cannot stress this enough. Because once the TRUST has gone you will lose that relationship.
An example of how I try to stay squeaky clean is this – I discovered two people I had worked with had paid £65.95 each towards a training for 2017. These two people are no longer going to this training and are not in any communication with me. But because TRUST is so high on my values I contacted them to return the money. They were shocked as they hadn’t even reconciled their accounts to know they had paid. The point is, they might not have known but I personally would not take that chance…Because my reputation for TRUST is TOO important to me….I am not perfect but I do try to always do the right thing. My reputation for trust is more important than embellishing my position……
MY MESSAGE TO YOU AS LEADERS IS YOU NEED TO ALWAYS AIM TO DO THE RIGHT THING, then you will be able to sleep at night.
