Summary: Why Trust Is Important

Merriam-Webster defines trust as assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something, one in which confidence is placed and dependence on something future or contingentHOPE.

Trust is important in every kind of relationship because it allows you to be more open and giving, You believe in the person’s integrity and strength, to the extent that you’re able to put yourself on the line, at some risk to yourself. Trust is essential to an effective team because it makes you feel safe.

If the level of trust is low in a relationship or business, people limit themselves and what they are willing to do or share. They might think to themselves, “This is all you deserve,” or, “This is all I am willing to give.” But when people are able to trust they reward the other person, relationship, or organization more. But, more often than not, people feel that their distrust is not safe to share. So a leader or loved one may be slow to discover that they have lost a person’s trust.

The 3 Elements of Trust

  1. Positive Relationships
  2. Good Judgement/Expertise
  3. Consistency

“Have enough courage to trust love one more time and always one more time.” Maya Angelou
