According to the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team ™, trust is the foundation. Many teams take trust for granted – assuming that it will grow on its own. Nothing could be further from the truth. In this interactive and impactful presentation, Gale will share practical tips and techniques to build trust within your team. First we will begin by defining trust. We will explore the 3 C’s of trust along with best practices for building vulnerability based trust. You will walk away with practical trust building exercises to use with your own teams. We will also apply trust building techniques to virtual teams where members may be spread out across the globe and rarely connect with one another face to face. Rebuilding trust is another critical skill in team performance so we will share ideas on how to mend fences and start anew. Teams that trust one another are able to engage in open, robust dialogue where every member is heard, considered and understood. As a result, members buy-in to the team’s decision and commitment increases. Members hold one another accountable to do what they said they would do and stay focused on the collective, positive outcomes of the team. Together everyone achieves more and it all starts with trust.
