How to Trust, especially when you have no reason to
Kehinde Fawumi shares on one of the most relevant topics to us all, at Netlight Consulting Edge Batch conference.
Usually the way we try to avoid being hurt is by holding-off on trusting until we know we are safe. If a person “earns our trust” then we will gladly give it to them. However, asking someone to “earn our trust” often means we are asking them not to make any mistakes.
Trust is a willingness to be vulnerable. Vulnerability and risk drives trust. Our disappointments from a few people should therefore not stop us from trusting in people.
