According to most dictionaries, trust is defined as “a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability or strength of someone or something.” While this is a widely accepted definition of trust, it is also a limiting definition.
We define trust as a “predisposition to coordinate actions with others - based on having positive assessments of the others’sincerity, competence and reliability.” We believe that trust is not just a firm belief. We believe it is also a call to act with others. Let us explain, briefly, what we mean by this and how an organization can work with this more powerful interpretation to build trust in an organization.
