In this episode of the Fastleader podcast, Darin Fox, Chief Research Officer at HFL, talks to Paul Matthews - a communications expert, coach and mentor, helping leaders and teams build trust through conversation and communications.
In this episode, we ask:
Why is trust so important? What are the effects of trust on team performance and engagement?
Has COVID made trust a bigger priority than for managers?
What is happening in a team that has high trust? What would we observe compared to a team that has “average trust”?
Is being a decent human being enough to build trust in a team? What can a manager do to build an environment of high trust?
What common, everyday activities do managers typically do during the work day that erodes trust?
“COVID has created a need for more trust.”
“Trust is like rocket fuel.”
“An average environment is a passive environment.”
“What can a manager do to go from average trust to high trust.”
“Don’t underestimate the impact of saying ‘good morning’.”
