Before you can build an effective and productive team, you need to build trust within your organization from top to bottom. There is no room in today’s business climate for hidden agendas or a secretive environment.
Trust is fragile and it’s hard to build a foundation within an organization unless leadership is consistent. Inconsistency and erratic behavior lead to the erosion of trust in any company.
Trust is also not automatically given and is often withheld until actions of leaders reflect a culture that propagates trust. To ensure trust is created organically, the organization’s leaders need to do some very specific things to earn trust at every level of the business.
Ryan in her Forbes article Ten Ways To Build Trust On Your Team, says “You and your fellow managers may have to step out of your comfort zone to make these changes. You may have to step out of your comfort zone merely to suggest making these changes!”
Building trust isn’t easy and with high turnover of staff it makes it difficult to keep the foundation you build steady. Finding new employees is also challenging and you must make sure that the culture climate in your organization is visible and solid.
Reinforce your ‘trust’ culture in at every level of the hiring process. Practice what you preach and communicate your key culture points to new candidates. This transparent culture will be transferred to your clients and customers.
