Why is trust so important? It resonates with our sense of self-worth and whether we, as individuals, matter to someone.
Is my boss focussed on his/her own self-interest or is he invested in my growth, development and learning? When things go wrong will I be supported, will he/she have my back or will I be out in the freezing cold facing the music on my own?
When your boss trusts you, you
❇️Feel that your opinion matters
❇️Feel empowered to try new things
❇️Feel inspired and motivated
❇️Will go the extra mile for them
In a nutshell, you thrive when you are trusted.
If everyone in the team is trusted and feels empowered, a culture of psychological safety emerges, where everyone is willing to share what they really think. Now we are on the journey to high performance.
