“Without trust we don’t truly collaborate; we merely coordinate or, at best, cooperate. It is trust that transforms a group of people into a team.” – Stephen M. R. Covey
Psychological background on Trust as a team challenge
In literature, trust is considered as “an essential ingredient for relationships to realize their full potential”.
Trust is not a static quality but an emotional skill and a dynamic part of human life as it includes the conscious choice and the decision to build a relationship based on personal promises, commitments and the individual skills of the partners.
Self-Confidence is an essential requirement for trust because you need to trust yourself before you are able to trust someone else.
Shared Values help your team feel connected to each other and therefore increase the level of trust between you.
Satisfaction within your workplace and your team means your expectations and needs get fullfilled which in turn is necessary to create a trusting working atmosphere.
Conflict is a part of the work process and can increase trust within your team if it is constructive and solves interpersonal problems. If you want to know how to deal with conflicts successfully, go to our challenge Conflict Behavior.
