Leadership for Trust

Creating an environment of learning, trust, safety, innovation and collaboration has crucial dependencies both on the organization culture and the team spirit. In an organization, a lack of trust is akin to a death knell.

You need to think, as a leader, about what you are doing to establish and maintain trust with your people. To do otherwise is to cut yourself off before you have been able to lead at all. If you are looking for a way to exert influence on your organization, this is it.

Consider your values, emphasizing trust, and do what you can to strengthen it. You should notice that people are speaking freely and doing their best work for each other. They seem invested in each other – and apt to believe what their collaborators tell them.
