“Principle: It’s reciprocal. As Newton’s Law states, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Trust, safety, and connection are reciprocal. As Stephen Covey wrote, “Trust begets trust.” (Chapter 5 Principle, Reconnecting Workspaces, Jennifer Britton, 2021).
As Kendra Cherry writes in her article, “Reciprocity is a process of exchanging things with other people in order to gain a mutual benefit. The norm of reciprocity, sometimes referred to as the rule of reciprocity, is a social norm where if someone does something for you, you then feel obligated to return the favor. “ – Source: Kendra Cherry, What is the Rule of Reciprocity https://www.verywellmind.com/what-is-the-rule-of-reciprocity-2795891
