What is trust and why would it be important to an organization? Trust is at the core of all of our most meaningful personal relationships. That’s just how we engage with each other as human beings. It’s no different when human beings engage with each other in business. It’s not mandatory that we trust our leaders or our team members, but when we do, everything gets easier and we progress faster. We are also happier. It turns out that when we don’t feel like most of our colleagues are out to get us, we sleep better at night, engage more deeply at work and we free up more of our energy to focus on doing our best work.
In this book, I’ll share with you my unique perspective on trust@work. What is it? Why do you want it? How do you foster it? How do you know when you’ve got it? How do you keep it? I’ll explore some of my favourite companies that model high trust cultures and of course we’ll share a few laughs.
