It Is Time You Took A Trust Fall

The Mission Newsletter, 9/25/18

“To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved.” –George MacDonald

The Most Important Currency

“Most businesses that we interact with are built around money, and money only goes so far. Money is the currency of transactions. Trust is the currency of interactions.” -Rachel Botsman, Author of “Who Can You Trust?”

One of the fundamental principles in developing meaningful relationships is trust. Impactful companies rely on radical transparency, strong connection and the ability to trust their team to get the job done.

The most successful leaders in the world have all embraced and suggested trust as the main component to thriving in business and in life. To celebrate today’s kickoff of Dreamforce 2018, here are eight quotes on trust that will help you succeed anywhere.

As The Wise Philosophers Aerosmith Said, Walk This Way

Everyone has a specific speed that they find most comfortable to walk, however, almost no one walks at that pace. That’s because how you walk is dependent on who you walk with. Men tend to slow down when walking with women especially romantic partners, but when strolling with other dudes, they pick up the pace.

Around the world, pace changes, too. A new study found that people in Uganda walking alone travel much faster than those walking solo in Seattle, Washington. But in groups and with children, they slowed waaaaay down, opposite of how those in the Emerald City behaved.

Does Your Boss Trust You?

Google is producing a new tool that will allow managers to find out if their employees are using the G Suite productivity tools. Called “Work Insights,” the feature will be helpful in giving managers an idea of how well employees are adopting tools, how teams are collaborating and whether meetings are being held on Google hangouts.

The idea is to aid in the collaboration process, but it still raises some questions and concerns about what your boss is looking at.

Coca-Cola Might Be Getting A New Secret Ingredient

Okay, that may be overstating things a bit, but Coke is thinking about getting into the cannabis business. Recent reports state that Coke is monitoring the cannabis industry and could be interested in entering the market of weed-infused drinks.

“We are closely watching the growth of non-psychoactive CBD as an ingredient in functional wellness beverages around the world,” Coca-Cola spokesman Kent Landers said in an emailed statement to Bloomberg News. “The space is evolving quickly. No decisions have been made at this time.”

The Quest for Better Mental Health Services

For students continues, this time in Louisiana, where the federal government awarded the state a multi-million dollar grant to expand mental health services.

Every year for the next five years, the state will receive $1.8 million to fund the Louisiana School Mental Health Support Program, which is targeting 34 schools where students are struggling.
