This is the third and last component of the “who you are” group of components in my trustworthiness model: Symmetry. This component is situational. This episode is the first of two parts discussing symmetry. Symmetry is a situational component, that is based on perspective. The two sides to a trusting relationship may have different perspectives of their relationship. This first part focuses on being on the same side. From a positive standpoint: having a shared vision or mission that are energizing and engaging the hearts and minds. From a negative standpoint: having a common enemy. It continues and discusses the symmetry of contribution and of getting (resources, compensation, etc.). Finally, it discusses reciprocity.
