Trust in Neighbors is High: Communication and Compassion are key

PRLog - Dec. 12, 2012 - DURHAM, N.C. -- Despite low trust in institutions such government, banks, and business leaders, a new study shows that we actually do trust our own neighbors.  A study from the Civic Life in America shows that 76% of us do trust some or most of our neighbors, talking to them frequently, and doing them favors like watching their home or their kids.

This increase in communication (or openness) leads to greater trust by building a sense of community.  When we offer to help out, we show compassion to one another.  When we actually follow through and watch each other's home and babysit each other's kids, we show that we are reliable and competent to do the job.  All of these demonstrate the ROCC of Trust.  These aspects of trust, as studied by Aneil and Karen Mishra, have been shown to increase levels of trustworthiness between people, the more that they shared.

You can read about more ways to build trust in their new book, "Becoming a Trustworthy Leader" available for pre-order on amazon.com.
