Smartly building trust is a key activity for successful collaboration. There is a lot of complexity involved in working successfully with others. And fortunately there are specific practices which can get you much better results. Here’s what works for me.
1. Build connection through a “hearing and being heard” process.
2. Commit to clarity, in yourself and in others.
3. Develop the skills and courage to take on important conversations.
The more I work on mastering these core trust-building skills, the easier and more productive my collaborations get.
