Belinda's Tuesday Tip 56 – What is Your Word Worth
Episode Summary –
How often have you been in a situation where someone promised things to you and simply didn’t get them done?
Being true to your word and doing what you say you’ll do when you say you’ll do it shows your commitment. It’s not uncommon for people to make appointments and then not show up or show up late, or fail to make a call when they say they will. Not only does this show a lack of commitment on their part, but it also creates the impression in others that they can’t be trusted.
Trust is fundamental in any relationship, and it’s especially important in a business relationship. Building trust requires that you keep your commitments in order to ensure that others can count on you to do what you’ve promised.
In this episode, I talk about the importance of honoring your commitment and the cost of not being true to your word.
