The Unexpected Power of Trust
Workplace trust is the glue that binds individuals to each other and to the organization's mission. The most successful organizations promote productivity and quality by creating trusting relationships at all levels. The trusting workplace is relaxed, open, creative and incredibly productive. Truth flows. The absence of trust will limit growth and will result in lost opportunities. In the worst situations, many of the recent corporate abuses took place when truth was muted. Corporate values are more likely to be lived in a trusting environment.
