TRUST: Part One - How to Give And Earn It

On this episode, Linda and Dana discuss trust, which is identified as one of five key factors for success in business relationships according to Dr. Cloud's new book. They delve into what it means to be understood by someone else, emphasizing that empathy is essential for building trust even when we don't necessarily agree with others' choices or actions, and they touch on the idea that sometimes we take on other people's problems unnecessarily instead of letting them deal with their own issues in due time.  Linda emphasizes that trust is important in both personal and professional relationships. They both reflect on how they can improve their own ability to understand others and build trust, particularly in family relationships where it may be more difficult due to emotional attachment. They discuss the importance of boundaries and confrontation in building trust, referencing Dr. Henry Cloud's books on the topic.   Get your Episode Guide <a href= "https://courses.lind
