Trust is not merely a soft, social virtue: rather, trust is a pragmatic, hard-edged, economic, and actionable asset that you can create. There is a compelling business case for trust.
Teams and organizations that operate with high trust significantly out-perform teams and organizations with low trust. This has been proven in dozens of studies, across a multitude of industries and sectors.
The Speed of Trust Practice helps organizations better manage change and create high-performing teams that are agile, collaborative, innovative, and engaged.
The foundation for fast and sustainable innovation is a culture of trust. Trust impacts innovation in 5 key ways. It leverages differences, enables collaboration, enables risk taking, creates a culture of learning, and creates speed.
Counterfeiting Your Culture
Trust is common sense, but it is not common practice. Many leaders engage in counterfeit behavior, which appears to be trustworthy, but in reality, it is not. Counterfeit behavior levies a tax on organizations which lowers trust and the costs are devastating.
Collaborating at the Speed of Trust
You can’t collaborate with people you don’t trust. You can coordinate, but there is a big difference between coordination and collaboration. Trust is the foundational element that transforms a team that coordinates into one that truly collaborates.
See how trust can transform your business and change the way you and your teams work together. Stephen M. R. Covey explains how things would be different if you could see trust.
