The Trust Towel’s six rules helps build common values of mutual trust and respect.
NO BULL | Tell the truth. Lies create cracks in the foundation of all relationships. When people commit to honor and integrity, trust prospers.
NO DISRESPECT | Be Respectful. Put downs, interruptions, insults and inattention are all trust busters. Mutual respect is the path to building trust.
NO BACK STABBING | Talk to people not about people. Betrayal is among the worst of all human behaviors. When something needs to be said, say it directly to the person.
NO WHINING | Be Positive. Negative energy, destroys security and hope. State the problem then begin working on the solution.
NO SURPRISES | Partners don’t surprise partners. Bad surprises, ruin relationships. Communication builds mutual understanding.
NO WASTING TIME | Respect other people’s time. There is nothing more valuable than time. When someone offers you theirs, spend it wisely.

- If you are guilty, you donate $1 to the Trust Bucket and the money collected is given to a charity
