Building Trust With Your Teams - Part 2
Jan 11, 2022
Hello and welcome to Episode 96 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
Today we’re continuing our 3 part series all about building trust with and in our teams.
Trust is such a foundation to a successful, cohesive and productive team and ultimately to a successful business. In fact Simon Sinek says “a team is not a group of people who work together, a team is a group of people who trust each other”. So without trust, you actually don’t have a team.
But defining trust, being able to identify it, and then working out how to nurture and build it, that’s a little harder to do. So whilst some leaders are innately good at it others need to work a little harder.
In today’s episode we took a deeper look at 3 more of the 8 Pillars of Trust as designed by David Horsager’s. After last week kicking off with 2 of what I think are the most important pillars clarity and consistency, today we looked at commitment, competency and contribution. Whilst not always as obvious, or even practical to see, hopefully todays discussion provides insight and food for thought about how these behaviours help to build and nurture trust in our teams.
Next week I’ll be back to wrap up the series by investigating the final 3 pillars and summarizing the trust – engagement relationship and the importance of trust in building high performing, resilient and loyal teams.
