Business environments that lack trust often have a culture of “everyone for him/herself”. People feel that they must be cautious about protecting their interests. They even can become reluctant to help others, because they’re unsure of whether their efforts will be reciprocated or recognized. These kind of situations must be avoided.
Business leaders need to built trust, just by being human. They can base their leadership on empathy, fairness, kindness and reciprocity. (“Sustainable Leadership in a VUCA World”, #David_Ducheyne). Trust facilitates warmth, openness, communication, knowledge sharing, cohesion, mutual cooperation and team bonding. It helps leaders to connect with the people around them. Employees feel that they are being heard and understood. In return, they will raise the bar and will deliver extraordinary business results.
