"You are doing the most important work of your life here at John Deere"
Trusting someone with your life is a different level and type of trust than trusting someone to be on time consistently. Of course there are several levels in between. First we need to define what level of trust you’re talking about because the wild card is that “Perception is Reality”.
WHAT we say is almost never the problem but rather HOW we say it. I have been through this hundreds of times where conflict is created not just by the subject but mostly by the delivery.
High personal performance and humility are also two things that always go together. Without humility you will view constructive feedback as a personal attack.
Trust is not as simple to understand as everyone thinks.
Understanding commitment and having a discussion about how we can increase our level of commitment is a very important part of any relationship whether at work or at home.
Think of forgiving as a circle that you need to go all the way around to complete the cycle of forgiveness. Sometimes you’ll get all the way around the circle and sometimes you won’t. That’s because you’re only responsible for your half of the circle. You can’t control others and can’t control their half of the circle.
