2012 – The Year of Ultimate Success
Tip of the week – This week I am inviting everyone to explore the world of “Trust”. How does trust impact your life? Your job? Your relationships? The view of the world you have?

Over the next couple of weeks I will share with you some of the distinctions of Charles Feltman in his book, “The Thin Book of TRUST: An Essential Primer for Building Trust at Work”. Today we start with the definition. “Trust: Choosing to risk making something you value vulnerable to another person’s actions.”

Remember, 95% of all roadblock are Disempowering Conversations! What could be more disempowering than not trusting yourself or others! Keep me posted on how this is going….
