Every worker says that he or she wants to work for someone that he or she trusts. Trust is the basis for all of our relationships. Trust more. You will be rewarded with deeper more meaningful relationships. Cultivate trust and work hard to maintain and strengthen it.

There is no doubt that at some point your trust will be misplaced; however, the small number of times that will happen will be far outnumbered by the times your trust is well placed. Trusting is a far better way to live than not trusting. Dr. Ollie Backus, a renowned professor at the University of Alabama, often said, “If the attitude is straight, you can trust the behavior.”
