Trust At Work

Trust is a conviction that is built slowly, through repeated interactions that take place over a long period of time.

It can be a challenge to make a potential partner agree to collaborate with us. If it is a known acquaintance or someone who owes us a favour, the task becomes a bit easier. If there isn’t any strong, pre-existing relationship, we have to demonstrate logic, rationality and mutual benefits, highlighting what is in it for them.

Example: If we have to convince a celebrity to speak at a college, and don’t have the funds, we can present the engagement to them as a chance to reach a wider audience and showcase their serious side.

A Sense Of Belonging
  • Belongingness is an emotional need of human beings, a desire to be accepted by a group of people, be it at the school or office.
  • Being part of a group includes acceptance, attention and support.
  • As people strive for belongingness, they also change their behaviour, beliefs and attitudes to conform to the standards and norms of that group.
  • To affiliate with others and be socially accepted is due to a basic intrinsic motivation: The need to belong.
  • It affects our self-presentation, self-assessment and also leads to social comparison.

The consequence of unrealistic goals

Some people love to set super-ambitious goals, thinking that even if they don't make those goals, they'll still achieve more than if they set lower goals. Other people get a buzz with stretch goals. Give them more incentives, and they'll achieve more.

But over-stretched goals can be counterproductive.

  1. Failure becomes excusable. Instead of challenging but achievable goals, piling unrealistic expectations on top of limited resources can lead to a culture of excuses and failure.
  2. If we frequently accept excuses, failure becomes acceptable.
  3. Once we've given people excuses and accepted defeat, we're too close to slipping into a culture where failure is expected.

Three Reasons Unrealistic Goals Create a Culture of Failure

To better build rapport and counter isolation do the following:

  • smile, tilt your chin lower so you're not looking down on them, and slow down your speech during your video calls, so you come across as being more credible.
  • set a finish time before starting a conversation with someone new to reduce the initial wariness.
  • Be more likable and validate others by listening to them and suspending your ego. Put aside your wish to contribute to the conversation and ask short, open questions like how, when, and why.
