Building Trust

December 14, 20232 min read

A Guide to Authentic Connections

Today, let's dive into something we often overlook but deeply need in our lives and work: trust. Trust isn't just a business buzzword; it's the magic ingredient in our relationships, workspaces, and even within ourselves.

Building Trust

Trust: More Than Just Business

In any endeavour, trust is key. Whether you're an artist, a writer, a musician, coach, mentor and business owner remember this: people connect with people. When you share your work, you're also sharing a piece of yourself. Building trust means opening up, being real, and showing that human touch in your art and work.

Why Trust Matters at Work

In any team or collaborative project, trust is what keeps things flowing smoothly. If you're leading a team, remember that people need to feel trusted to give their best. It's not just about managing tasks; it's about understanding and believing in each other.

Trust in Teaching and Beyond

If you're teaching or guiding someone, trust is your best tool. It's not just about imparting knowledge; it's about building a relationship where learning can flourish. This is true whether you're coaching a fellow artist, teaching a class, or even parenting.

How to Build Trust? Start Simple

  1. Know Who You're Talking To: Take time to understand people. Not everyone is comfortable with eye contact or being the first to speak. Tailor your approach to their comfort level.

  2. Listen and Engage: Really listen to what people are saying. It's not just about waiting for your turn to speak. Engage with their ideas, and show that you're truly interested.

  3. Share a Bit of You: Don't be afraid to open up. Sharing a little about yourself makes you relatable and builds a connection.

Being Real in Professional Life

In any leadership role, being genuine is key. Admit when you don't know something. Celebrate your team's strengths. Remember, a true leader grows with their team, not apart from them.

Trust Is a Two-Way Street

Building Trust

Trust is about giving and receiving. Be open to trusting others and being trusted in return. This mutual understanding is what builds strong, lasting relationships in both personal and professional settings.

Actions to Build Trust Today

  • Ask someone how they're doing and really listen to their answer.

  • Share something about your creative process or a recent challenge you faced.

  • In your next team meeting, acknowledge someone else's idea or contribution.

Trust is powerful. It's what connects us, drives our creativity, and builds strong communities. Let's embrace trust in our work, our collaborations, and our daily interactions. Start small, be genuine, and watch the magic happen!
