A harvest of trust

Create Trust Like A Farmer Creates A Harvest

  • Trust affects the speed of business.
  • You can create an environment of trust.
  • When trust is high, you get projects done with less drama.
  • Every farmer is convinced in sowing and reaping.
  • They believe the harvest is hidden in the seed..\
  • Trust is just like seed.

1. A farmer prepares the ground

  • You have to prepare the ground of your team by talking about trust.
  • Your words create expectancy.
  • Show them what a high-trust high performance team can look like.
  • Close the gap between expectations and reality.
  • The bigger that gap between expectations and reality, the larger the drama.

2. A farmer sows the seed

  • You have to sow the seed of trust first.
  • As a leader you go first. You give trust first.
  • You will never have the things you want in your organization unless you give them first.
  • Earn your team’s heart by first giving yours.
  • The greater the risk, the greater the reward.
  • You trust your people first.
  • The more transparent you are, the easier it is to see your heart.
  • People connect with your why, before they connect with your how.
  • Don’t be self-oriented, but become other oriented.

3. A farmer waters that ground

  • Trust does not occur in one event.
  • Change transpires in a process, not a one-time event.
  • Don’t give up and revert to the carrot and stick approach of management.
  • Changing culture takes a process.
  • Values and beliefs take time to change.
  • When you have trust, people motivate themselves.
  • When you create a high-trust, high-performance culture, that culture will give you want you want.

Who can you give trust to?

goals

  • What do you demand of yourself?
  • You never make a change unless you make a demand on yourself.
  • Whatever you demand of yourself is what you accomplish.

1.  You lose focus

  • The reason people fail is broken focus.
  • How do you focus on your goals? Do you put them before you?
  • Whatever you give attention to, you’ll have energy for.
  • You only live life once, but if you live it right, once is enough.

2. You don’t become the person you need to become

  • Personal growth has little to do with time.
  • You won’t change on the outside if you don’t change on the inside.
  • Your inputs determine your outputs.
  • Being is always greater than doing.
  • Your present lifestyle is determined by what’s inside of you.
  • Be a big person and you’ll do big things.
  • As your ability and awareness increases, you will increase.
  • Nothing makes a better impression on other people than managing yourself.
  • Motion is generated by emotion.
  • If you don’t value yourself you won’t value your time.
  • Many people live busy but unproductive lives.
  • Do you have a stop doing list?
  • What’s the one thing today that I need to do to move my business forward?
  • The enemy of effectiveness is busyness.
  • Your mind gives back to you, what you put into it.
  • If I can’t lead myself, others don’t follow me.

3. You don’t have a big enough why

  • How clear is your why?
  • When it’s clear to you, you can communicate it clearly
  • If people don’t buy into your why, they won’t do your how.
  • Your why is your motivation.

Be Aware

  • Knowing is the enemy of learning.
  • If you’re not aware of a problem, you’ll never reach for an answer.
  • When you’re aware of the needs in your life, then you’ll know what answers to look for.
  • What do you need to know more about?

Be Teachable

  • Your answers are either in a book or a person.
  • Anything you want, is something someone has already done.
  • Find the person that’s where you want to be and find out how they got there.

Be Disciplined

  • You must have a plan for learning.
  • Many people believe in success but few plan for it.
  • The power of your life is in the plan of your life.
  • When you take charge of your learning you take charge of your life.

Be Curious

  • Learners are always asking questions.
  • He who asks the questions controls the conversation.
  • People won’t give you advice unless you ask for it.
