Trust, Patience, and Effort
A recent Gallup poll suggested that 67% of employees of big companies don’t trust their leaders, organization, and direction of the company. 10% were neutral. That means you as a leader have only 23% on board with you and trust you! YIKES!
Warren Buffet said it the best. “Trust is like the air we breathe—when it’s present, nobody really notices; when it’s absent, everybody notices”. Gallup suggests that if you are seeing low-performing teams you are more likely to have a low-trust culture.
Creating high-trust cultures takes time, patience, and effort. The first thing we need to do is practice being true to ourselves. The second is to be open and transparent with your teams through words, behaviors, and actions.
Being transparent might seem risky at first. As it might expose some vulnerabilities that you might have as a leader or the organization. But Trust demands facts and open communication. You must be able to share your mind, intentions, and beliefs. This opens the door to better communication which equals trust.
