S7E8: TRUST and (mis)communications
Manage episode 347574430 series 2933850
The common wisdom is that communication is one of the foundations or pillars of trust. But the relationship between trust and communication is actually reciprocal. On one hand, we tend to trust people who communicate with us with transparency. Who tells us the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? We trust people who tell us what we need to hear, and not necessarily what they think we want to hear. But on the other hand: would you be willing to share confidential information with someone you don’t trust? Would you be willing to be vulnerable with someone you don’t trust? Would you feel comfortable giving direct feedback to someone when you don’t know (or trust) how they will take it? And will you accept that kind of feedback from someone whom you don’t trust to have your best interests in mind?
This episode will address that relationship in greater detail.
