B.R.A.V.I.N.G. The Anatomy of Trust


According to Brené Brown's research, there are 7 main elements of trust.

Here's a breakdown: ▪️Boundaries: Honoring other people's limits as well as having a willingness to say no. ▪️Reliability: Following through on what we've said we would do. ▪️Accountability: Owning up to our mistakes and making amends. ▪️Vault: Holding information in confidence when it's not ours to share. ▪️Integrity: Behaving in a way that upholds your beliefs about what is right, even when it's challenging. ▪️Non-Judgment: Speaking and listening in a way that does not harbor judgment and that judgment-free space being reciprocated by another. ▪️Generosity: Extending the most generous interpretation possible of others' intentions, words, and actions. I feel like this really helps give us an idea about how to build trust in ourselves and others.
