July 2011 “It’s All about TRUST”
Another way of stating this is:
“Trust is like the air we breathe. When it is present, nobody really notices. But when it is absent, everybody notices.” Warren Buffett
In case you or your organization are “out of air” and stuck, please consider the following:
“We have met the enemy and he is us.” Pogo
Ask yourself, “How have I contributed to this situation?”
There is always something to learn.
“There has never been a conflict from which both parties didn’t have something very cool to learn. That’s why we call them parties.” Mike Dooley
Imagine you had 2 lessons to learn from this experience, what would they be?
Truth upsets the apple cart. Truth makes people think.
“The best mind-altering drug is truth.” Lily Tomlin
Who are my stakeholders?
Do I understand their business reality and success measures?
What is the most pragmatic action I could take today to be better aligned for success?
