“Trust is like blood pressure. It’s silent, vital to good health, and if abused it can be deadly.”
This is a Frank Sonnenberg quote I included in a past blog post. Trust is a subject that has often been discussed on this blog, because it is an essential part of the dynamic, not only in leadership, but in every single relationship.
Trust is a subject that one of our newest additions to the BW Leadership Institute (now Chapman & Co. Leadership Institute, read more here) Rich Diviney, knows more than a little bit about. For 20+ years, Rich was a Navy SEAL Officer,completing more than 13 overseas deployments. You can be sure that trust was an essential part of every one of his teams’ missions.
Rich has a new post on the BW Leadership Institute website, The Anatomy of Trust. Give it a read and think about how you and your organization views trust.
