Trust is built on mutual respect

Trust is intangible, but it is an intellectual asset. While always needed, it is sometimes in short supply. For leaders of state to have the trust of the people, they must demonstrate competence, integrity and benevolence. The same can be said for the relationship between parents and children. The trust that subordinates place in their leaders ought to be reciprocated.
For parents and children, a certain level of disagreement is not uncommon. However, mutual respect can help reduce hurt feelings and animosity during times of family tensions. On the one hand, children should respect the authority of their parents, and on the other, elders must also respect and nurture the younger generation’s ability to make their own choices. Such mutual understanding is also important for building reciprocal trust between the administration and people. If a misunderstanding causes tempers to rise, provided there is respect, the conflict should be resolved easily.
Trust cannot be made by words alone. Promises must be backed by action, as a basic element of functioning relationships in organizations. A certain amount of time is often needed to establish trust. Feelings of insecurity can be the source of problems such as teasing, conflicts and disputes. Mental well-being is largely supported by positive attitudes such as appreciation, respect, openness, and honesty.
Distrust is associated with negative expectations and a lack of confidence in the other. It also involves the belief that someone may not care about the welfare of others and may act harmfully.
Mutual trust is integral to ensuring cooperation and maintaining interpersonal and inter-group relationships within organizations.
Communication and cooperation are improved by trust, which in turn can positively impact productivity. But the benefits to an organization from mutual trust cannot be realised in the absence of sincerity and honesty.
