HK Snob's Creation: Trust and Credibility
Sam, as one of my blog supporter who asked me to buy for him a Deep Sea D-Blue whereas he could not get it in Philippines, I told him send me some deposit and I will get one and deliver to him by hand…. To my surprise, he sent me 100% full fund of HK$91,000 to my bank Account last Friday!
So I know I have to find an official Deep Sea though I could not estimate when but for sure not too long I could get one for him.
I suddenly talk to myself why Sam could trust me., well, probably there is no negative comment from other discuss or Forum, and most people know that the most important thing in life is Trust, and Credibility. Each if us should move one step ahead first, of course Sam has moved 10 steps ahead first!
Here I started to search Google , to my gladness, I find this topics “How to Build Trust and Credibility”
By Frank Sonnenberg
I try to make it shorter as there are as many as 55 ways to build trust and credibility, but when I go through each of them, I cannot cut short anymore. Each of them is necessary to be there. And, I think the first 10 and last one is the key message.
The last one says: REMEMBER, trust and credibility take years to develop but can be lost in seconds.
1.It takes many years to become an overnight success.
2.Good intentions are just the beginning.
3.Your reputation is their first impression.
4.Show people that you care about their needs.
5.A promise should be as binding as a contract.
6.Never sacrifice a long-term relationship for a short-term gain.
7.Don’t expect people to look up to you if you look down on them.
8.Give credit where credit is due.
9.The danger of shooting from the hip is hitting yourself in the foot.
10.Be knowledgeable and remain current in your field.
11.Follow through on every commitment that you make.
12.Take the time to provide the rationale behind your recommendations.

16.Never cut corners.
17.Stand up for the things that you believe in. (Waffles are for breakfast.)

23.Present both sides of an issue. (Let them judge for themselves.)
24.Be a good listener.
25.Disclose potential conflicts of interest.
26.Even a tiny exaggeration can destroy your credibility.
27.Once you make a decision, don’t look back.
28.Always tell the truth or the truth will tell on you.
29.Surround yourself with people who have a high degree of integrity.
30.Your actions “off-stage“ (i.e., at an office party or on Facebook) impact your trust and credibility.
31.Typos and grammatical errors loom larger than life.
32.Remain transparent. (You’ll never be faulted for communicating too much.)
33.Never ask someone to do something that you’re not willing to do yourself.
34.Reliable and consistent behavior on your part allows people to anticipate what you’ll do in the future.
35.Do what’s right, even if nobody is looking.
36.You are judged by the company that you keep.
37.Your actions must match your words.
