Trust Building In the Workplace Workshop: Trust Multipliers

Trust Multipliers: Activating The Domino Effect That Accelerates Team Engagement, Innovation and High-Performance.

“High trust organizations outperform low trust organization on total shareholder ROI by more than 280%.” –Towers Watson Worldwide Study

The Challenge Of Building Trust

One of the biggest challenges teams and organizations face in today’s business environment is a lack of trust in the workplace. The majority of engagement survey results we’ve seen, “Lack of Trust” is almost always present as one of the areas needing attention and improvement. If you’ve ever been on a team or tried to manage one that didn’t trust each other you know how challenging and frustrating this can be.

Trust In Teams Is Non-negotiable

A team that doesn’t trust each other is really just a group of individuals that work on tasks but never reach their full potential. They cannot bring forth exceptional results as team. The bottom line: Low-trust teams don‘t perform well or produce exceptional business results. Why? Low-trust teams argue over roles and responsibilities. They don’t consistently cooperate or collaborate with each other. Riffs form. Confidence is overshadowed by doubt. The team environment weakens. Everything begins to take longer and becomes harder. Commitment, productivity, innovation and team engagement all suffer because trust is absent from the mix. Trust is the cornerstone of engagement.

Trust is the foundation of effective relationships leading to business results.

Trust is the solution. Trust is the new competitive advantage for every team and organization. When teams trust each other, not only do those teams excel, so does each individual on them. A prerequisite of every great team is agreeing to a set of behaviours that establish clarity of communication, agreements, alignment, and commitment around a shared-goal. But that foundational principle is always built upon mutual respect and trust.

Trust Makes Team Work

Teams with high-trust connect, collaborate and allow team members to do their best work together. They support one another. They work smarter, faster and accomplish more. Business results are achieved through relationships. Authentic relationships are built on trust. Teams do their best work in a workplace that has a culture of trust build into it. Bottom line: Trust makes teams work because trust builds the bridge between the business need for results and the human need for connection.
