REPAIR JOB FOR A NEW YEAR

 

potholes

Trust is a big word–and includes answers to these four questions:
—Do I trust the information?
—Do I trust the judgement?
—Do I trust the commitment to follow through?
—Do I trust the intentions TOWARD ME?
Sometimes the answers to these questions actually result in lowered trust levels–and breakdown in mid-journey.

No matter how hard we work at building and maintaining trust, situations arise that can cause “potholes” of damage.

Trust is a two-way street, so these repair suggestions work for both Mentors and Mentees along the high-way

of this unique  relationship called mentoring:
—When trust is damaged, be ready to work really hard to get it back.
—Take the first step by deciding to let the past go–for the sake of the relationship.
—Be honest about your own contribution to the problem, even it it’s embarrassing.
—Work together to establish realistic goals around renewed commitment.

Trust always has to be maintained; it takes both partners to keep it as a vital causeway in human endeavor.
