Building Trust – Under Promise
To help build trust in your relationships we’re exploring the acronym TRUST. The U stands for “Under-Promise and Over-Perform.” We undermine trust when we make great promises, but never deliver. Likewise, when we exceed expectations trust is built.
Jesus revealed the power of this concept in Luke 5:4. Speaking of Jesus it says, “When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”
Peter had been fishing all night without any success. Even though Jesus planned on delivering two entire boats full of fish, he simply promised them a “catch.” Jesus exceeded Peter’s expectations, which resulted in Peter following Jesus!
If you desire to build trust at work, under-promise, but over-perform.
