January Program Meeting

Trust Evolution

Categories: TAHRA Program Meeting
Presented by Greg Hawks

Next to culture, trust has the greatest impact on the forward progress of an organization. As the cornerstone of all relationships, recognizing weak trust is essential for leadership teams. It directly impacts collaboration, good decision making, vendor relations and most critically, customer care. There are obvious clues indicating the level of trust amongst individuals. There are also very clear steps to take to grow trust.  

Objective 1:  Recognizing Weak Trust Indicators

  • Meeting after the meeting
  • Minimal contribution during meetings
  • Won’t ask for help or share struggles
  • Won’t challenge colleagues

Objective 2:  Growing Strong Trust

There are a variety of parameters available for growing trust using the framework of Competence, Caring and Commitment. Through these lenses individuals determine to what extent they will trust someone. They also offer the filter to discover the root issue in relationships. Growing Team Trust is vital when cultivating culture. Even individuals who have been on the same team for years realize they have been unwilling to have hard conversations because they don’t trust the outcome or response. Trust is fragile. Growing trust is tricky when it appears the relationship is already healthy. 

Objective 3: Establishing Best Practices

  • 15 ground rules for confrontation in a team setting
  • Practicing being Candid vs Honest
  • One-on-one conversation road map for dealing with interpersonal weak trust
  • Practicing vulnerability
  • Practicing growing team trust
