 A Competitive Advantage for a Business Family – Trust

To build a solid trusting relationship requires Time, Intentionality, and Proximity. Remember the ‘TIP’.

Take the quiz:

How do others view my trustworthiness?

            - Do I do what is right – at any cost?

            - Do I look out for the best interest of others?

            - Do I support and build-up others?

            - Do I show and give respect to others?

            - Do I act consistently with my values?     

How do I communicate my trustworthiness?

            - Am I responsible for the outcomes of my actions?

            - Am I open and transparent in my communications?

            - Am I counted on when I give my word?

            - Am I consistent in doing what I say I will do?

            - Am I sure my motives are pure and genuine?

By building a culture of trustworthiness in our family and our business, we will have a competitive edge.

As a Business Family cultivating trust is critical.
