Trust is Contextual not Blanket

“Do I trust this leader, individual or organization?” is rarely the right question.  That assumes “blanket trust.”

Trust is typically more about the context of situation or interaction. You might trust your plumber to fix your pipes, but not to give you financial advice. You may trust XYZ’s product, but you may not trust it’s a great place to work at.

Instead ask, “Do I trust [person/organization] to do [what]?” Then it’s directed at the specific situation and not a blanket statement.

This also goes to the nature of trust and how we use in the world and with relationships!

Emotional Intelligence in Business Conversations

Many times you can’t choose the emotions you feel (although your self-awareness and thoughts can dictate quite a bit). BUT you CAN choose which emotions you share (and react to).

Self-awareness and emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize your emotions and your emotional landscape.

It’s also in part recognizing filtering them and learning how to express them appropriately and respectfully in business settings.

The old adage think before you speak also works with your emotions!

Speaker Testimonial by a Sales Organization

“Jason presented to our AA-ISP NYC, NJ, CT members chapter meeting where Jason conducted an interactive session. I’m still receiving reviews and feedback that he’s a phenomenal speaker and conducted an interactive session keeping everyone engaged and participating. Everyone left the evening with something to impact their teams and individual leadership abilities. I highly recommend Jason.”

Derek Garrard, Head Of Sales Development at Kustomer

Learn to Say NO in Business

Just say no immediately than say yes and then drop the ball because your too busy (and you knew you were when you said yes). Key point: Manage expectations appropriately. 

If you’re not going to make time, don’t give people false hope. Just set boundaries and tell them the truth.

And perhaps you could help them in a week, month, etc. Tell them that and have them check back in with you. 

Speak your truth and others will respect you.

Friend or Foe in the Workplace? Choose Wisely

Narratives (we create) and our expectations of others directly influence our interactions and relationships.

For example: View others as competitors, and you’ll create a world with enemies in it. 

View others as collaborators, and you’ll create a world of allies and advocates. 

It often comes down to the blueprint of how we see the world and the choices we make. 

Thoughts->thought patters->actions->habits->identity.
