It’s a business of trust

Call me a hopeless romantic, but this post really resonates with me. Jeff Zoul writes about trust in an educational organisation, ‘in the trust business’. He speaks about a culture of trust which forms when principals trust their superintendents, those start trusting their teachers, and the teachers trust their students. He also lists ten top factors of trust like ‘show you care’ or ‘value diversity and dissent’, or ‘support innovation’, but to me the most important factor is to trust your team and their work ethics. I remember how I told someone exactly the same words: ‘I trust you to manage your time well’, and her eyes lit up.  Don’t you want more of this in your life?
