Building Trust | Under-Promise 


To help build trust in your relationships, we’re exploring the acronym TRUST. The U stands for Under-Promise and Over-Perform. We undermine trust when we make great promises, but never deliver. Likewise, when we exceed expectations, trust is built.


Jesus revealed the power of this concept in Luke 5:4. Speaking of Jesus, it says, "When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, 'Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.'"


Peter had been fishing all night without any success. Even though Jesus planned on delivering two entire boats full of fish, He simply promised them a “catch.” Jesus exceeded Peter’s expectations, which resulted in Peter following Jesus!


If you desire to build trust at work, under-promise, but over-perform.
