Developing Trust, Delivering Results
Work Effects Crafts 3 Small Steps for Building Trust and Leaving Big Footprints in the Workforce
What do Augustus Caesar, George Washington, Gandhi and Jack Welch have in common? All of these great leaders mastered the small steps of building trust among their superiors, peers and followers. Trust is what drove their greatness, and created a culture of trust and prosperity in their wake. Work Effects has assessed truly successful organization and found their leaders cultivate 3 primary principals for breeding trust.
It begins with the relationship with self. Trust is fostered in relationships developed and influenced by our relationship with self. This relationship reflects internal traits based on aligned emotions, sustained determination, intellectual flexibility and character. If the relationship with self is weak and underdeveloped building trusting relationships with others will be very difficult.
Second, trust will mature both in depth and capacity through consistent actions and behaviors. By doing this you demonstrate specific beliefs, values and knowledge over time. As human beings our collective norms and values will cascade down through our communities and permeate our workforce. Naturally trust increases as does the overall impact of the relationship when we say what we mean and do what we say.
Third, trust is cultivated through open and honest communication. We instinctively trust people more the better we know them. By taking the initial risk and allowing yourself to be vulnerable you take the first step towards sustained trust. We trust those most like us in background, beliefs and values, when this information is not willing provided suspicion and mistrust transpire in society and organizations.
