Jimi Hendrix unknowingly posed an important business process question in 1967 as the title to a song and his debut album. An earlier article, “If It’s Not a Process, It’s a Problem,” discussed the importance of processes. This article will discuss how we go about developing good processes. Any good process begins with experiences. Experiences are an accumulation of encountered events. If, and only if, one gains skill or knowledge from those experiences can they lay claim to experience.

This brings to mind the familiar expression “Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement.” Of course, this is an over-simplification. Experience comes from encountering events, making judgements/decisions about how to act in those events, and evaluating those decisions to determine lessons for the future. Lessons should be learned from both bad and good decisions.

Are you trustworthy? Are you someone that others can place their trust in and have confidence that their trust in you will not be betrayed? While most people may consider themselves trustworthy, others may have a different opinion. Trust or the lack of trust can have a large impact on many aspects of your life and business such as personal and business reputation, relationships, team effectiveness, customer loyalty, financial support and so on.

To get a sense of how trustworthy you are, rate yourself from 1 to 10 on the following 10 characteristics. Take your time and be honest. If you are brave, try asking your clients, co-workers or even employees to make the same evaluation to see what kind of trustworthy gap exists. Then take the results and make resolutions to improve this coming year. Calculate your Trustworthy Score as follows: Rate yourself from 1 to 10 on each of the following characteristics, then add up your points and divide by 10 to assess your trustworthy score.

1) Accountable – willing to recognize and accept responsibility and take ownership for problematic situations

2) Authentic – genuine, original, not fake. Portrays a truthful personality and impression.

3) Consistent -even on a bad day, you display consistent, positive behavior in your actions and your words
