“Trust me, great relationships are key.”

Trust is generally established in conversations, through the power of listening, which ultimately will provide connectivity between two individuals. In fact, the failure to listen to the other, which often may cause one to jump too quickly to conclusions, is a major factor in the break-down of trust between two people, and ultimately, the break up the relationship.

Individuals become engaged in each other when listening is at its fullest; the engagement fosters a greater focus on the other person and a true interest in the subject matter. At this juncture, collaboration and the willingness to work together are created through establishing common goals and approaches. Trustworthiness is on its way to acceptance!

From this point forward, the repeated interactions between those two individuals will become a habit, and as such, the trust between them increases as do the successful business outcomes. This is the beginning of a long-standing commitment to action and success.

Nurture and sustain your relationships and make them truly a vital part of your business. Your ability to establish and develop a trusting relationship and commit to its success in the long-run are absolutely key to your business’s profitability.

“People say New Yorkers can’t get along. Not true. I saw two New Yorkers, complete strangers, sharing a cab. One guy took the tires and the radio; the other guy took the engine.” David Letterman.
