“Understanding the anatomy of trust allows you to diagnose where it’s missing, and take a big statement like ‘I can’t trust this person’ to a much narrower scope, that you can actually take action around, in the form of a conversation.”
We often think of trust as a binary — either you have it, or you don’t. Either it’s there, or it isn’t. Like a light switch, we think trust is either “on” or “off,” with nothing in between. This extreme view of trust leads to some extreme behaviors. With a single violation, we can easily write off the possibility of trusting a person ever again. In this episode, Kari and Paul explore a more nuanced approach to trust that serves us in building lasting, authentic, trusting relationships.
