TRUST – The cultural barometer
Creating that competitive edge
Society’s glue – Trust – its presence cements relationships by allowing people to live and work together. Creating a place for us to belong, feel valued and do great work.
Trust is essential to an effective team because it provides a sense of safety. When this happens, they feel safe with each other, feel comfortable to open up, take appropriate risks, and expose vulnerabilities.
Growing a high-trust culture is more than just flinging the word “trust” into your corporate values and hoping it will suffice. It is the leader’s responsibility to drive a culture where people can flourish – they do this in the conversations they have and actions they take.
To gain and keep that competitive edge, building trust is an imperative and you are the key.
