Taking a leap of faith and trusting your colleagues almost always pays off, according to tech CEO Bev White. 

"We've all worked with those people that say, 'You have to earn my trust.' I really don't agree with that," the Nash Squared CEO told CNBC "Make It." 

"I implicitly trust people. That's my go to position," she added. "If you show people they're trusted, they're going to do their very best work. Nine times out of 10, that's always going to be what happens." 

However, this does not mean there are no consequences if someone takes advantage of that trust. 

"Of course, if that trust is broken, it's going to take a long way to come back from that," she said. 

This is just one of five of Bev White's biggest lessons. Watch the video above for more.
