Slow down to speed up later
This was the title of a post I wrote some time ago, and ad adage I use often.
Today a concise thought around the power of slowing down to build trust and how that can then accelerate decision-making and action.
I encourage the adage “slow down to speed up later”… relationships are still one of the most powerful tools for business (and life!), and, as you say, trust takes time to build… so slow down and take time, as once trust is deeply held, speed of decision and action is faster

Thanks to Rachel Botsman for the inspiration, I feel her continuing work around Trust is really significant, I’ve written around her thoughts for some time, including “Transparency versus Trust?“.
Trust does take time to build, yet when it is truly solid, the speed of thought, agreement, action can be so much faster.
Take time to invest in building trust, the ROI can be immense!
