Honesty:

  • Communicates openly and truthfully

Support:

  • Support each others choices
  • Being understanding
  • Offering encouragement
  • Listening non-judgmentally

Cooperation:

All great things to be looking out for in your personal and professional relationships. It’s the latter, though, that’s gotten me thinking quite a lot about my history of employment, those I’ve partnered with for startups and new ventures, and even as I consider new roles with new companies.

Trust and developing an organization around trust is so fundamental.
