    2. 2. OBJECTIVE: BUILDING TRUST FASTER The success of a joint venture partnership may require you to share important information about your business. In doing so, you trust your partner in the venture to do the right thing and make the right choices. http://www.christianfea.com/the-importance-of-trust-in-your-joint-venture.html People ultimately choose to do business with people they like, and everyone likes someone who appreciates them (giving praise). http://www.fforbes.com/sites/amyanderson/2013/06/28/people-do-business-with-people-they-like/ It’s tough to thrive in business without strong business relationships. Our experience has been that if sharing is not promoted from the top, it’s not likely going to be done on the bottom. http://www.s4consulting.com/General/when-businesspeople-dont-share Trust starts at home. Companies have to treat their own employees well. If employees trust their own company, it will spill out into the marketplace. Companies also have to trust their employees. In the excellent book Smart Trust, by Stephen Covey and Greg Link, the authors underline that belief with a story about Continental Airlines. http://trust.edelman.com/slides/2013-edelman-trust-barometer/ #b2bcamp
