The root of any good or great relationship is trust. Without trust it is impossible to maintain or build a relationship. Trust is a necessary component to any relationship that is to be deeper than a superficial relationship. So how does an individual begin the journey of building trust with another individual?
There are a few ways:
1. Sometimes a level of trust is established based upon an introduction by a someone else that is mutually trusted. And so begins the journey of a referred client or maybe even the blind date that Aunt Mary set us up on. I guess a referred client is the equivalent of a blind date when you think about it.
2. After meeting a person, trust may be established by the small actions that build into larger ones. You set a time to meet and the person keeps the appointment and shows up on time. Trust is increased. The person tells you that they will commit to a task and then they follow through. Trust is increased again. The smaller things culminate into an increased level of trust until finally a true level of genuine trust is established.
3. The “gut feeling”- we will discuss the “gut feeling” in a moment.
Trust can be broken when someone does not follow through. Sometimes trust is broken even due to a person’s perception that another has been untrue to their word. Perception can cause trust to falter whether it is based in reality or not. When questioning ourselves on whether we trust another person, sometimes we come up with the response that we just have a “gut feeling.” That “gut feeling” is ultimately probably based on a perception of another based on something we have seen, heard or believe.
The root of any relationship is trust. Both business and personal relationships are built upon trust. Without it, there is no real relationship.
