1. Start With Self: Before expecting trust from others, ensure you're trustworthy. Self-awareness and integrity are key.

2. Clear Intent: Always operate with a clear and transparent intention. Let people know your motives upfront.

3. Deliver on Commitments: Consistently delivering on your promises shows reliability. This is a fundamental block in building trust.

4. Listen Actively: Actively listen to others' concerns and needs. Feeling heard fosters trust.

5. Transparent Communication: Open and honest communication bridges gaps. It's better to address issues directly than let them worsen.

6. Extend Trust: Be willing to give trust to others. It's a two-way street; showing trust can encourage it in return.

These principles are inspired by "The Speed of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything" by Stephen M. R. Covey, shared with you by Omar's Desk. Embrace these tips to foster a culture of trust that enables high performance.

What would you add to that list?

P.S: I often discuss number 6 during mentorship conversations when the mentee brings up strained relationships with others in the organization.
