You can have the best product but your business won’t succeed without customers. Customers buy from companies they trust. Without trust, there is no sale. Everyone in your company has a part to play in the customer’s decision to buy from you. Trust is a learned skill. Everyone in your company needs to acquire it.

Without trust, you won’t be able to build loyalty, engagement, or advocacy with your team, customers, suppliers, or stakeholders. And in a virtual world, trust is paramount. Business owners and women who master this skill will emerge from the pandemic with a significant competitive advantage.
