DailyQ #53: How do I develop more trust...

How do I develop more trust between my employees? In this week’s series special, Troy Hoffman speaks on the issue of trust. This subject is a huge issue in the workforce. And although the concept is simple, many people overlook the importance of this key characteristic.

Trust is key in any relationship, whether it’s personal or work-related. Trust is simple. You follow through on your word. If you for some reason can’t, you immediately go to the person and apologize for failing them. IT’S THAT SIMPLE.

However, trust is constantly being broken. This can be super damaging for an organization. I’ve heard of huge corporations losing millions of dollars over this issue. Lack of trust and follow-through has shut down many businesses.

We have to look within ourselves to get to the core of the issue:

  • Where in your life are you not exhibiting trust in your actions?
  • Are you constantly late?
  • Do you fail to keep your word?
  • Do you do way too much bullshitting?

As a leader, you must train people to trust you. Do this by following through on your word as often as possible. But you are human, and if something comes up, let you people know right away. Then reset your commitments and boundaries. People will follow your actions. So, as I asked earlier, where in your life are you not exhibiting trust in your actions?

Now go and live your destiny!
