Igniting Transformation with the Power of Trust by Zain Raj
We often miss vital signals that can help us better prepare for life’s surprises. We very often focus on the wrong things and do not see the things we should. But there is one thing that can help us see better, and that is trust. Trust presence cements relationships by allowing people to live and work together, feel safe, and belong to a group. Trust in a leader will enable organizations and communities to flourish, while a lack of trust can cause fragmentation, conflict, and even war. But to quote His Holiness the Dalai Lama, “To earn trust, money, and power aren’t enough; you must show concern for others. You can’t buy trust in the supermarket.” In this episode, we discuss trust and how it is an essential part not only in our private lives but in business.
