Flashback Friday: How Deep Does Your Trust Go?

Every Friday I dig into the archives and dust off an old post. If you haven’t read it, it’s new to you!


I’ve written before about our staff’s desire to assume the best: that the people around us are smart and have good intentions. And that’s an outstanding mantra…one that belongs on one of those office motivational posters under a picture of a yoga student sitting in front of a waterfall.
