The TRUST Show

The TRUST Show

Trust is not what you think it is. It is not absolute or universal. Trust is relative. The same behavior that would cause one person to trust you could cause another person to distrust you. The level of trust someone has in you is the product of their trustfulness (their willingness to trust other people) and your trustworthiness. There is almost (I said ALMOST) nothing you can do about the former, and everything you can do about the latter. Because of that, you must evaluate your own trustworthiness one relationship at a time, separately. Odds are, though, that the same behaviors that are holding you back from being more trusted in one relationship are holding you back from being more trusted in other relationships. Welcome to The Trust Show. I’m your host, Yoram Solomon, a top 10 trust expert and researcher, the author of the book of trust, and the creator of the Trust Habits® workshop that helps people and organizations form new habits that change old behaviors, build trust, and transform organizations. In this educational podcast, I will challenge you to think differently about trust, through the 8 laws of trust and the 6 components of trustworthiness. I will share my own stories, experiences of others, trust research, and sometimes, reflect on a news item. And through those, I will show you how to build trust, be trusted, and know who to trust. Because the answer to this question will have the biggest impact on your personal and professional, success or failure: can you be trusted?

There are many benefits to being trusted. One condition to be trusted is to be trustworthy. It’s still not a guarantee that you will be trusted, but it’s a prerequisite. So, what makes you trustworthy? Over the years, I observed 8 laws of trust, and developed my 6-component relative trust model. Instead of talking about those, today, in this episode, I will talk about the 3 principles of trustworthiness, that are the basis for the ...

Who do you trust? In The Book of TRUST, I claimed that there are three entities you trust. You trust yourself, you trust God, and you trust other people. Trusting yourself is the one thing that determines your risk-tolerance level without having to trust anyone else. Trusting other people is what most of my work focuses on. But how about trusting God? Do we all trust God? Do we trust God to the same extent? To answer this question,...

The foundation for the Trust Premium™ concept is that we pay first and get value later, and we must trust the salesperson or professional that they will provide value. The value is no less important than the price because of a few deeply ingrained beliefs such as "You get what you paid for," "There is no such thing as a free lunch," and "If something is too good to be true, it probably is," as they influence consumer behavior. I to...

There is a “shortcut” that some people use to become “Amazon bestselling authors.” This practice is problematic and, in my opinion—unethical. I don’t believe those who do it are intentionally trying to mislead. I think they are caught by the “everybody is doing it” or misguided by someone who doesn’t care about the unethical consequences.

There is a lot of sarcasm in my tone of voice in this episode, and I come across as preachy. I...

Symmetry (including fairness) is a component of the “who you are” component group in my Relative Trust™ model. It is the situational component. It’s a given, but it causes us to trust (or distrust) people in a relationship simply based on where they are relative to us. To trust someone, you must be on the same side of “the wall.” There has to be an equal contribution level (from you and them to the organization) or distribution (fr...

When you fly, you must trust. As a passenger, you must trust the pilot, the plane, and the people who designed, built, maintained, tested, and certified the plane. You must trust God, the weather, birds, and other things outside human control. If you are the pilot, you must also trust yourself and the plane’s instruments. In this episode, I will apply my relative trust models and the laws of trust to three aviation crashes. I will ...

After one of my keynotes, someone approached me and asked me for advice. He described a toxic work environment within his team that he couldn’t stand anymore. Should he try to fix it with the team myself? Should he speak to his boss? Should he just leave? What should he do?

So, I gave him advice, and decided to share it with you here. No names. Just the advice. And, as you can imagine, the word TRUST came in several times.

Politicians are among the most distrusted people. It didn’t use to be that way, but it is now.
