Great Insights on Building Trust and Community

In December I wrote Building Community - Trust Begets Trust where I discussed the research of Kouzes and Posner in The Leadership Challenge that promotes the role of trust as a foundation for leadership and collaboration. The key phrase was a catch phrase, "Trust Begets Trust. Trust is a two-way street where you need to trust others just as much as you need others to trust you. Trust works both ways. Trust is needed to build community.

I was delighted when the post was included in the January Carnival of Trust. The Carnival of Trust is a monthly blog carnival which focuses on the role of trust in business and other relationships. The compilation is sponsored by Trusted Advisor Associates and the January carnival is hosted by Ford Harding of Harding and Company.

The Carnival of Trust offers lots of insight into trust as a key leadership components. Here are some of my favorites from the carnival.
For quiet leaders who strive to build community, trust is a key requirement. Read and enjoy the Carnival.

Thanks for reading. Please lead quietly.
