58% of employees trust a stranger more than their manager

How do you create, manage and restore trust in teams and relationships?

Picture this: you're being put in charge of a team that almost obsessively clings to their old boss and compares every single move you make to that person. They do not trust you, so what do you do? Or two employees who used to be friends had a dispute outside of work and are now distrusting each other and even manipulating each other at work?

Trust at the workplace is essential for the performance of your team, yet the numbers tell us that leaders deal poorly with this topic. Approximately 70% of us experience at least one traumatic event in our lives (source: PubMed) and roughly 23% have experienced a traumatic incident at their workplace (source: ILO). How do you react when rumors of misconduct reach you, but your employees feel like they can't openly share this with their team? 

66% of black women do not feel emotionally safe at work (source: HBR). Do you know how to react if a black employee comes up to you and says that she feels like she can't show up as her true self and speak up freely?
You gulp? You get sweaty palms?

Making psychological safety a culture is key to organizational performance. Companies that institutionalized psychological safety saw a 27% reduction in employee turnover (Source: Forbes) while 57% of the workforce felt more inclined to collaborate and 67% felt more productive (Source: Forbes).

Next to understanding trust and learning how to foster trust in human relationships, TRUST2LEAD helps you prepare for trust interventions and supports your ambitions to create a framework for psychological safety at work.
