Community trust, the ability to trust your neighbor, is going down.
This is not a doom and gloom thing. I mean, we’ve actually been here before. Trust can be restored. I saw trust restored in some of the most trust-depleted villages on the planet in southern and eastern Afghanistan by brave Special Ops leaders and others who went in there to help people believe in themselves at a community level.
Trust is social capital and that capital can be restored. But to do that, you’ve got to be serious about your leadership and I just need you to know that if you’re trying to launch a new product, if you’re trying to enter into a new realm, or get people to buy into your vision at your company, the baseline of trust has most certainly changed.
Join me by the camp fire in Old Florida and let’s talk about a “Life Without Trust”, and how we can use our leadership skills to change the game in our own “trust depleted” communities and workplaces.
I’ll see you on the Rooftop…
