Trust is an essential tool in your workplace toolkit. Without it, it doesn’t matter what kind of skills or experience you have, you’re simply not going to get anywhere. That’s why Alexi Mann asked me to talk about how I gain trust at work.
As I say in the video, I ended up doing some research and using notes to communicate my answer in a more succinct way, which is a bit of a cheat, especially since up until now, my answers have been relatively free-form in order to emulate an actual interview scenario. I think the reason this one was more difficult to present is because while we all use techniques to build trust, rarely do we actually think about specific strategies we use; we simply behave as is true to our personalities.
