BRAVING to Build Trust

In the book “Dare to Lead”, the author Brene Brown mentioned about seven behaviours that encourage building trust. These behaviours are represented by the acronym BRAVING.

Boundary. We respect others’ boundaries.

Reliability. We keep our promises and do what we say.

Accountability. We take ownership of our actions and mistakes.

Vault. We protect information that others shared with us confidentially.

Integrity. We prefer courage over comfort and do the right thing instead of what’s easy.

Non-judgement. We create safety for people so that people can tell us how they feel or ask for help without expecting us to judge them.

Generosity. We are consistently generous in our interpretation of words, actions, and intentions of people. And always see the best in others.
