A 50-Second Reminder: Treat People as if They Matter
Galliard Founder and Board Chair Lisë Stewart says:
Trust and building trust is really important to me.
And here’s my #1 trust builder:
Treat other people as if they matter.
What does that mean?
It means listening all the way through without judgment.
It means caring about what they have to say.
It’s about caring about how they feel about what they have to say, and what they’ve experienced.
And it means that in that conversation and in that moment, they matter more than I do.
That’s what it means to really treat people as if they matter.
When people believe they matter, that builds trust.
