When we think of a “betrayal,” we often think of an earth-shattering, personally-devastating, stabbed-in-the-back sort of deception. But betrayals come in all shapes and sizes. And failure to acknowledge and deal with the “little betrayals”—such as routine gossip at the water-cooler—can have a huge effect on the state of trust in our organizations. In this episode, Kari and Paul discuss how to spot these minor betrayals, and how to deal with them early on and effectively.

1:16 — Major vs. minor betrayals
2:39 — How to identify minor violations
3:42 — The “four boxes” of betrayal
6:17 — An example of a minor betrayal
8:00 — Gossip as a minor betrayal

13:03 — How to start engaging with violations
14:38 — The value of identifying betrayals
“Minor betrayals accumulate. Most of us don’t address them in the moment as a violation of trust because they’re minor, and we don’t want to make a big deal about it. Over time, though, they grow bigger than the actual event. And the cumulative weight of all of these minor violations that has them transform into a major violation.”
“One of the most powerful skills for a leader to have is the ability to overcome violations of trust—whether coming at them or sourced from them. And the first step is to be able to recognize those violations in the first place.”
