Inspiring solidarity and trust within our own team has been on my mind a bit recently. I tried to put my finger on what exactly it accomplished more than just gezelligheid, then I read:
According to Stephen M. R. Covey & Douglas R. Conant, trust is “not a nice-to-have; it’s a must-have. Without it, every part of your organization can fall, literally, into disrepair.” They go as far as to say all leaders should consider their trust-building competency as the central focus of their leadership work.
Here are the three keys to activating the virtuous circle of continuously improved performance and confidence:
  • Declaring intent. Declaring intent reduces resistance while enhancing commitment. Takeaway: always convey your fundamental motive or agenda — why we’re doing what we’re doing?
  • Demonstrating respect. It’s not enough to say you respect people’s feedback or contributions. You’ve got to show it. Repeatedly. Takeaway: make a tangible commitment to recognize efforts
  • Delivering results. Deliver the results you declare — consistently and confidently. Takeaway: delivering results in a way that builds trust is more than just accomplishing tasks—it’s doing the right thing, in the right way, for the right reasons, in the way that you said you would. 
As always, thanks for reading!
