Kim Peterson Stone, CEO CommonSenseHealth.org
Human beings are naturally social creatures and we tend to like to do business and associate with people we know, like and trust.
This is the foundation of every good relationship. When you trust your team and colleagues, you can be open and honest when sharing your viewpoint and have confidence in the actions you take.
When you build trust with prospective clients you are perceived as a trusted connection. You form a bond that benefits both parties over the months, years and decades you are connected.
Therefore, it stands to reason that if we try to improve our standing as a person who is known, liked and trusted we are setting ourselves up for a more enjoyable and productive business as well as personal life.
When we seek to first build strong and trusted relationships, we eliminate the time and energy spent overcoming the problems associated with negativity and drama, and, instead, focus on mutually beneficial opportunities.
So, what can you do to up your KLT (know, like and trust) factor?
Here are 9 ways you can work towards developing those important relationships which will help you build trust and cooperation.
Take the time and make the effort. As technology advances, the value of the Know Like and Trust Factor will be even more important than in years past.
As humans, we crave connection. Be one of those connected people who bring real value and genuine caring … as that never goes out of style.
