Follow Up to a Relationship Story – The Synergy of Trust (with Survey Responses from 200+ Leaders)

My recent Relationship Story, “The Synergy of Trust”, included a request for input from members of this community.

The survey request was: Please identify three words that you feel describe the keys that make trust flourish in relationships.

The response was great. I really appreciate the participation – this community really has a “voice”. The top five answers were Honesty, Respectfulness, Integrity, Openness and Caring. The top twenty answers are listed below with the number of times that each was named. I took the liberty of grouping these into four general areas including: Beliefs, Principles, Dependabilities and Behaviors.

I hope you find this information to be valuable. At least for me, it is very helpful to have a map to follow toward greater trust in my relationships.
