Especially during the world financial crisis we see that the soft facts are evidently far harder than the so called hard facts. What is commonly called trust has been lost. In his social theory Prof. Luhmann understood trust as a reduction of complexity: “Who accords trust, anticipates the future. He acts as if he was sure of the future.”
Trust in others requires a solid self-confidence as well as the knowledge of one's own strengths and weaknesses. Such a self-conscious individuality can also tolerate and encourage more self-reliance in others – that is how employees are motivated to perform creatively, while leadership becomes exciting and the enterprise benefits from the diversity of resources.
