Sincerity and Authenticity.
Be ready to both learn and/or teach with a genuine desire to build understanding and trust.
Are you a monster?
People love their communities and are worried when change comes knocking. Show them you will be a good neighbour by being clear about who you are and what you are trying to do. Make promises and keep them. Be honest about what’s up for negotiation and what’s not. Show them you will be the kind of neighbour they can trust to listen and respond if any concerns show up down the road.
“Do it with service, love, honesty, and sincerity. Build trust and then build more trust.”
