It’s really all about trust isn’t it? “What’s really all about trust?,” you ask. Everything!
As I sat to write today’s blog post, I thought of a recent awards ceremony that I attended. Our team is recognized by the Wall Street Journal as the number one producing team in New England. I flashed back in my mind to when I received a similar award a previous year. I remember thanking, among others, a former office manager for her tremendous support.
Just Hit Me
Today I wondered what it was in particular that I appreciated most about her. I couldn’t think of any one specific thing. Then it hit me. I simply trusted her. I could talk to her about almost anything and felt that it would forever be kept in confidence.
It’s actually not dissimilar to that which makes a successful team. In sports or in business. One of the ingredients to our success as a real estate team is the trust that we have for one another. Is it Shangri -La? No, Shangri-La only exists in fiction. Do we have hiccups – of course, hiccups are part of our biophysical makeup as human beings. Yet there’s a much higher level of trust that exists among us than in the workplace of any other business environment that I have observed, certainly in the world of real estate.
A Child’s Garden
A child’s self-esteem is probably the best illustration of the power of trust. Their love for their parents is in direct proportion with the level of trust that they have for them. And for the love that they have for themselves, which is in direct proportion with their ability to love others.
It’s so true. Relationships, love, family, work and life. It’s all about trust!
