Fast Company: The Three Habits Of The Most Trustworthy Person In Your Office, 2016-Apr-1 by Karissa Thacker
It’s all too easy to get locked into patterns of perceiving and behaving that don’t build trust, leaving us unaware of them and even further from understanding what things we actually can do in order to build it. As a result, our own feelings toward others—how much and whether we trust them, and vice versa—remain a bit of a mystery.
Changing that can dramatically improve how well your team works together, and it starts by understanding what the most trusted people actually do in order to get that way. Here are three of the primary habits of those who command others' trust at work.
According to @KarissaThacker
|They consider the signals they're sending||Are you behaving in ways that send similar signals that others can rely on you?|
|They take time to understand the pressure others are under||We tend to trust people who listen and pay attention to us more than those who don’t.|
|They help out unexpectedly||Make the conscious effort to do something nice that you don’t have to do.|
