101 Creating a Culture of Trust – An Interview with Yonason Goldson Part 2 of a Two-Part Interview

In this episode, Christina Martini and Yonason Goldson discuss:

  • The crisis of ethics facing the world today. 
  • Treating others fairly without unreasonable expectations. 
  • The onset of COVID and how it has added to Yonason’s message personally and professionally.
  • Supporting and lifting one another through struggles and life. 
  • Earning trust before demanding trust. 


Key Takeaways:

  • When it comes to ethics, the first place to start is with ourselves. 
  • There have to be consequences and uncomfortable conversations when performance does not meet standards, however, there should be incentives for good behavior, not just punishment for bad behavior. 
  • We are all having different challenges - we need to find ways that we can lift and support one another. 
  • Let others speak, hear their points of view, and ideas will often emerge from unlikely sources or people who would not have been heard otherwise. 


"If employers would say to their employees, ‘Listen, we understand this is difficult. We want to support you as much as possible. We need you to take more responsibility for yourselves. And we're going to trust you to do that until we have a reason not to.’ Well, when you speak to people that way, it tends to encourage them to hold themselves more accountable." — Yonason Goldson
