To accomplish those things that matter most to you and whatever organization(s) you belong to it is vital that you work effectively with the other "performers" in your circus. A key factor in building a team and getting them to contribute (whether your team is a company or a family) is to build a culture of trust. Trust is one of those things that takes a great deal of work and time to build but can be destroyed in seconds.
Stephen M.R. Covey and Greg link have just written a new book on how to build trust and create prosperity, energy and joy in a low trust world. Consider what you can do to improve and create trust in your relationships. Also consider what you may be doing that is eroding the trust that you have worked hard to develop. Make a change and win!
