Trust is the foundation of healthy relationships and it must be earned.

  1. Innovation creates an environment where people accept themselves and others as a natural—and even necessary—part of the growth process. This attitude supports an environment where people work without fear and look forward to discovery.
  2. Start by trusting yourself, then extend trust freely to others to create reliance within the team, department, and company, and with customers and anyone else involved.
  3. Be quick to forgive others, to enable them to rebuild trust.
  4. Provide people with the opportunity to solve problems, for their own personal growth as well as the success of the company.
  5. Trust that the actions and decisions of those around us are the results of in-depth thought and a consideration of possible consequences.
  6. Have confidence that others are doing the best they can with the knowledge, power, and resources they have been given.
