Trustworthy leaders inspire people to do their best work.
Why do Trust Building® behaviors measurably improve your effectiveness as a leader?
Trust is a leadership asset you can't be effective without.
Imagine you're facing a critical challenge. Perhaps engagement scores are down. Or inter-departmental collaboration is suffering. Or your culture has lost it's energy as it's been subjected to change, change, and more change.
Ask yourself, in situations like these, which would you rather have: people who stand back, withhold, and try to protect themselves? Or people who dig in and work with you to forge solutions?
The primary difference between the two is the level of trust you, as a leader, inspire.
When you commit to building trust, you discover what people really need from you to do their best work.
You gain insight into what's holding them back...and how you may even be holding yourself back. You get 'the whole picture' and the perspective you need to harness your best intentions, immediately take action, and unleash the best in those you lead.
Through trust building, you erase every shred of doubt about your intentions and capability as a leader.
Shoulder to shoulder with those you lead, you overcome your most critical challenges, and build a legacy of which you can be proud.
"A one-eighth improvement in leadership trustworthiness resulted in a 2.5% increase in profitability. No other single aspect of manager behavior that we measured had as large an impact on profits.”
