Building trust is one of the most important parts of working with other people.
When you want to get hired, the hiring manager needs to trust your ability to do the job well. After all, she is sticking her neck out with her boss and saying that she thinks you are the best candidate for the job. You build that trust that by presenting the knowledge, skills, and previous work experiences to do the job in your resume and during your job interviews.
When you start working with a new boss, he will stop micromanaging you when he trusts that you’ll do good work without him watching everything you do.
If you want more responsibility, your boss will need to trust that you can handle more important projects without taking up too much of his time or hurting the company.
When a Board of Directors approves the annual budget, they aren’t voting on the numbers in the budget. They are voting on their confidence in the CEO to handle the company’s finances correctly.
Business is all about building trust and maintaining that trust. If you want to advance your career, you will need to act in a way so the people around you trust you.
