Moods are everywhere! We are always in one mood or another. In a way, they are the background tone of our existence, the lens through which we see the world. In this episode, Kari and Paul look at which moods support trust and which make trust all but impossible to sustain. Although moods have an outsized effect on our daily lives, we are not at their mercy. No matter what mood we find ourselves in, we can always cultivate a new one, one that sets us up for trusting relationships.

“The other person’s mood impacts what you can say. So when you walk into a situation, you want to know, what is the prevalent mood in the room right now? And perhaps before you deliver your message, you want to do something to impact that mood.”
“We are at the effect of other people’s moods, but we often don’t see that we also can develop our skills to orchestrate moods with them. How do you even begin that process? By increasing our awareness and specificity about the moods we are in.”
