You know what you mean when you talk about trust and you know what you need from others in order to trust them but can you say what others might need from you or what they think is important?

Does trust within your social relationships show up differently compared to trust at work with team members?

What difference do you think it would make if you could discover what the people around you needed to see for them to trust you? Or if they became aware of what your requirements are to be able to trust them?

I’m throwing out a lot of hypotheticals but only with the smugness of someone who knows there is a way to answer all of these questions. Before we get into that though let’s circle back to team trust.

We can all probably agree that without trust you can’t really call a group of people a team. It is crucial and so central to the way each individual member works together that its importance cannot be overstated. Trust drives the energy, engagement, innovation, morale and results of the team so making sure it is sustainable is critical to success. A simple internet search supplies countless works of research proving this very fact.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to measure, manage and monitor the trust levels of a team – almost like a thermometer or finger on the teams’ pulse? A way to open up a dialogue with a team and facilitate an on-going development plan to help all members work well together.

I’m glad to tell you there is! It’s called the Team Trust Indicator (TTI) and it can be used with any and all teams whether they are international, virtual or board level. With packages available starting from £1925 get in touch with WorldWork to discuss how we can help improve team productivity and innovation levels.
