High trust teams truly function as teams…not just in name, but in spirit.
Why do Trust Building® behaviors measurably improve collaboration and teamwork?
When the going gets tough, who do you want to work with? Who do you want to be in the trenches with when you hit a roadblock?
People you've connected with superficially, as colleagues who happen to work for the same organization? Or people you've connected with authentically, as supportive partners committed to one another's – and your team's – success?
Authentic relationships are built on trust.
Trust unleashes game-changing collaboration. Through building trust, you and your colleagues discover what's most important – not just to the work, but to your individual growth and development.
You learn how to support one another meaningfully.
You connect at a deeper level, a connection that gives you insight into how to leverage one another's skills, expertise, and wisdom.
You and your colleagues produce your best joint effort, again and again. You truly collaborate and function as a team. You do more than simply meet your team’s objectives. You surpass them.
"A rigorous approach to establishing trust and positioning collaboration as a critical capability will enable companies to reap the full benefits of our globalised, high technology environment.”
