11 Ways to Build Trust = 11 Ways to Build Your Real Estate Business. | Today's Real Estate | Scoop.it

Without trust you can’t have engaged relationships and without engaged relationships you won’t be a successful leader, manager, sales person, team member, principal, teacher, nurse, coach, etc.

John M. Holland's insight:

1. Say what you are going to do and then do it.

 

2. Communicate. Frequent, honest communication builds trust. 

 

3. Make good decisions.

 

4. Value long term relationships more than short term success.

 

5. Focus more on your core principles and customer loyalty than short term commissions and profits.

 

6. Trust generates commitment; commitment fosters teamwork; and teamwork delivers results.

 

7. Be honest.

 

8. Become a coach. Guide people, help them be better and you will earn their trust.

 

9. Show people you care about them.

 

10. Always do the right thing. We trust those who live, walk and work with integrity.

 

11. When you don’t do the right thing, admit it. Be transparent, authentic and willing to share your mistakes and faults.
