Baseline

A baseline is the starting point for making comparisons.  It can also be thought of as the minimum requirement for moving forward.

TRUST is the baseline for meaningful and fulfilling human interaction.  Without a baseline of trust, either or both parties withhold, hedge, shield, and evade.  Substantive accomplishment cannot fluidly ensue when those factors are in play.

What are some things that foster trust?

  • Do what we say we will do.
  • Listen intently when others speak.
  • Express empathy, often and many ways.
  • Be truly interested in the "stories" of others.
  • Serve - relentlessly, without expectation of return.
  • Seek always the collective good over the personal.
No price tag is attached to anything on that list.

We can start today.
