High levels of confidence in a team will result in faster results and lower costs.
What is it that makes a leader of people today? It is important to create conditions that allow people to perform at their best.
Sometimes it comes down to your leadership behavior; other times, it is dependent on your environment.
Trusting and believing in your people is one of the most important components. Trust will grow when you can see the potential in each person and encourage and build them. A team that has high levels of confidence will achieve better results and produce more at lower costs.
As a gift, trust should be shown
Here’s the big question: Do you have to earn trust from your people first? Is trust based on believing in your people – their strengths and abilities as well as their commitment?
The conventional wisdom says that people must first earn trust. If they break that trust, it is hard to earn it again. It has been shown that leaders in healthy organizations are more willing to trust their followers and give it away as a gift, even before they earn it.
You can trust your people and have them believe in you. They will then be more productive workers. You will also see significant business benefits.
You can take small and large steps to increase trust factors, which will lead to employee loyalty. These are the steps you need to take in order to make tangible progress.
To determine if your company values are being implemented across the organization, review them. If you believe that honesty, teamwork or integrity is an operational value but this is not the case for you or your staff, it could be a problem of trust.
