Recovering from the “Hit and Run” – I remember when Stephen Covey was asked how to rebuild trust after it was broken.(organizationally or individually) His answer was profoundly simple. After emphasizing that do so is never an easy task, and one that generally takes a lot of time, he said that the best way that he knew to go about it was to “Make a promise and then keep it. Then do it again, and again, and again.” He emphasized that the size of the promises made as not important…but not breaking them was essential.
Speaking of Trust – Most are probably aware of the “Harlem Shake” video trends. I was aware of it..but didn’t know it would hit so close to home.
A couple of weeks ago Rebecca and I were away for a weekend leaving the kids in charge of themselves. They love it when we go away and assure us that “they have it handled”. We always come home to a very clean house, bathed and happy children – with the little ones saying how much fun they had with their big brothers and sister…BUT we’re never really sure what goes on while we are gone. This time however we caught it all on video…check it out.
Shake it today… and BUILD TRUST
