S4E4: 10 Ways to be More Accountable and Trusted (Part II)

1/23/2022
This is the second part of this two-part episode on accountability. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines accountability as “an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions.” In my research, I found a very strong link between trust and accountability. Like any trust relationship, this one, too, is reciprocal. If you behave in an accountable way, I will trust you, I will give you autonomy because I trust you not to abuse it, and you will then trust me,...

1/2/2022
A very famous speaker was procrastinating until the last minute on writing his speech. In fact, he went on stage without the entire speech. He was a procrastinator. Then, on stage, he added four more words to it. He decided to start with the words: "I have a dream..." We typically look at procrastination in a negative context. But, is it all bad?

S3E7: Becoming more Trusted, Step 5: Making it Stick (Part II), Extrinsic Motivation

11/21/2021
It's not enough that you identified the new habit that must replace an old bad habit that was holding you back from being more trusted. The Goldilocks rule states that if it is too easy or too hard, you will not be motivated enough to form this new habit. So, you chose a habit that is right there on the line of being too hard. The previous episode gave you five methods to make it a little easier, or make it "stick." But, often the intrinsic motivation (being more trusted) is simply not...

In previous seasons and episodes you learned what trust is, the benefits of it, the costs of not having trust.

S3E2: How to Kill Trustworthiness

10/17/2021

Nevertheless, the outcome is the same: they cause their people to lose their trustworthiness, and as a result, they can’t trust them. This episode will explain WHY it happens in light of the 8 laws of trust and the 6 components of trustworthiness which were covered in seasons one and two of this podcast, but also give you tools, using those same...

S2E10: (Not a) Great Job! Participation Trophies, and Trust

10/3/2021
There are two words that are probably responsible for launching more failed businesses than any other two words in the English language, and possibly in history: Great Job! This episode is more of an opinion, and it’s an opinion about one of my biggest pet peeves, and it is linked directly to trust, the lack of trust, the decline in trustworthiness, and the decline of excellence and exceptionalism. I will be using my trust model to explain why we do it, what are the consequences of it, and...

S2E9: There is More Than One Way to be a Trusted Brand

We are bombarded with tv and radio commercials telling us the certain brands are TRUSTED. I always cringe when I hear that. Are they really trusted? Are they worthy of your trust? Says who?

You will want to hear this. Finally, this episode briefly discusses...
