In this episode, we expand on a really useful analogy that was used by a guest on the Safeti Podcast, Bob Cummins, about establishing employee trust in the workplace.
We break down 5 ways to help you build trust with your peers and colleagues;
- It takes hard work and a long-term commitment
- Get good at listening
- Be consistent
- Do as I do, not as I say
- Be vulnerable, stay accountable
To add to that, treat people as you would like to be treated. Regardless of your past experiences, good or bad, you must assume that everyone is capable of great performance, and respect in a way that reflects that belief – as we found with the example as the beginning, if there is a lack of trust from the outset, then that will likely be reciprocated in the performance of the individual.
