Is Your Team A ‘High-Trust Environment’?


Among all the new phrases we’re getting right now like ‘social distancing’ and ‘self-isolation’ is ‘high-trust environment’. The Govt uses it about an unenforced lockdown and wage subsidies to employers that are supposed to be passed on to employees. There is a need for speed, and a cost to enforcement, so who am I to argue? Clearly, not everyone can be trusted but (hopefully) most can, and someone will sort the stragglers when the dust settles.

I’m not in charge of a country (& neither are people who post comments on online news sites). But, during crises and beyond, our ability to achieve is highly impacted by our team’s ability to generate a high-trust environment.

Self-assessments are by definition SELF-assessments, so your FEELINGS about how your own team is doing on the trust front might be interesting but they’re a fraction of the picture. How can you better assess the current state of trust, determine where it should be, AND get yourself from A to B? It’s especially critical for remote teams who are separated by geography and schedule.

This is one of the personal and professional effectiveness topics I coach online in highly interactive sessions with practical takeaways. Let me know if you want to learn more.

About Terry Williams - The Brain-Based Boss

I'm all about engaging people and helping you engage yours to influence behaviour to improve results - at work and at home. Maybe you're a manager, a salesperson, a leader, a parent, a presenter or an event organiser? You need to grab your people's attention, create some rapport, be memorable and influence behaviour change. How can we do that? I'm originally a trainer by trade, turned manager, turned comedian and partway back again. Author of 'THE GUIDE: How to kiss, get a job & other stuff you need to know', I write and speak about how to engage people, be they employees, family or yourself. How can we connect with people’s own internal motivations and help them use their own inner passions to drive towards productivity, success and happiness? And hopefully have a few laughs along the way... As a trainer facilitating learning and development in others, I find myself drawing on my own extensive business experience. I specialise in the delivery of high impact, customised training solutions for organisations that are serious about improving the performance and lives of their people.
