What are the elements of building trust? When you look at it academically and over 30 years of research, there are three key ingredients that have been identified, that together will create trust. The three ingredients are ability, integrity, and benevolence.
How do you build trust in a remote situation? Most of us are novices building trust in a virtual world. And I think that's where we have to think about making trust, explicit. So what I mean, by making it explicit is we have to make it explicit and intentional, we can't assume it's just going to happen. And that's where models can help. So if you want to make something a little bit more structured, and help people break it down and manage it in manageable chunks, models can help you do that.
