I recently interviewed David Horsager about his new book, Trusted Leader: 8 Pillars That Drive Results. (You can listen to that HERE.) In part of the interview we talked about communication and trust. 

Often, when people say they want more communication, they aren’t really asking for more interaction or conversation. They are asking for trust

We communicate all the time, even your silence is communication

You are communicating that you don’t want to do business with the other person.

I had to chuckle a little and told him this is the number one thing I hear when working with couples on their marriage.

“We don’t communicate.” In reality, they are communicating everyday, just not in ways that are going to cause the marriage to thrive. 

It is more about trust. They don’t have trust in their spouse in order for what they are saying to make a difference.

Listen in to the interview today and see what you think of our conversation. 

More on trust and communication in our next installment.
