From data of 597 people and distilling 50 years worth of research, I wrote a practical guide for building trust in teams.
Dear manager or employee who wants their team to perform well,
If you Google Books “trust,” you’ll get 147,000,000 plus hits. On Amazon Books, “trust” turns up in 50,000 results. Woof.
“Building trust” within your team seems important to do. But from the barrage of resources, how exactly do you go about it?
This guide is an attempt to answer that question in a concise, practical way.
We surveyed 597 managers and employees, cited conversations from almost 1,000 managers who are a part of our Watercooler online leadership community, and distilled research and books on trust from the past 50 years.
My hope is to save you some time and energy. You don’t need to sift through the 147 million hits on Google. You don’t need to read the research on trust from the past 50 years.
In these guides, you’ll learn…
- Three models of defining trust — and why understanding this matters
- The 5 ways trust affects your bottom line
- The 3 most effective ways to build trust (and the 3 least effective ways)
- Tactics for implementing each of these three methods for building trust
- The 7 ways to build trust as a new manager
- Five ways for your team to get to know you better
- The 25 best icebreaker questions
- How to build trust while you’re working remotely
