If there’s one thing that’s vital to the success of any small business, it’s the building of trust with customers, clients, and employees. It may be even more important than great sales. If you can get others to trust you and your company, it will be much easier to grow and nurture your business. But how do you go about building this trust?
One of the easiest ways to build trust is to show that you trust others. Be generous and forgiving when someone else makes a mistake. Don’t jump to the worst conclusions about people. If you give others the benefit of the doubt, they will trust you more for your generosity. This will help you create relationships that are mutually beneficial; if you are both getting something out of the relationship, there’s a mutual trust that’s building.
Rough patches are still a natural part of any relationship, though. The key to maintaining trust lies in how you address these issues. If you address problems in a clear, direct manner, rather than in a passive-aggressive way or by going behind someone’s back, people will see that you trust them enough to deal with the problem themselves.
