In this trait we have found two key elements that effect trust. The first is caring. That answers the question, “Do they have my best interest at heart?” An example of this might be someone who gives you an assignment or an opportunity that you may be daunted by or somewhat afraid of initially and they infuse you with confidence and let you know they have your back and believe you are ready. They express their caring because they have your best interest at heart.
We also discovered that respect plays into the caring trait. Think of it. How can you believe in and trust someone who does not demonstrate their respect for you? If a person diminishes your contributions with jokes, grabs your ideas and calls them theirs, talks to you in a condescending manner or ignores you in certain “important meetings,” these signs of disrespect will negatively impact your belief that they respect and care for you.
