Emails with ambiguity, miscommunications about commitments, hoarding information, worries about outsourcing, delays... No trust here!
Research makes it clear that trust is a pivotal value that can significantly improve a company's performance in the global market. Employees' readiness to trust one another is critical to sharing information, taking calculated risks, surfacing innovative ideas or bringing problems to light as soon as they occur. Companies with high levels of trust experience increased speed, higher morale, reduced costs, and higher total return to shareholders than companies with low trust, thus gaining a competitive advantage.
In this program, learn how to identify and increase trust in a multicultural or global team. Learn the dimensions of trust you most value and how to bring this clarity to your team. Explore how cultural differences affect priorities in the decision to trust, adding challenges for global organizations.
Following this session you will be able to:
- Identify ways in which increased levels of trust will help you achieve team goals/objectives
- Discuss the 10 Trust Criteria and clarify trust priorities in your team
- Understand cultural factors that influence a person's decision to trust another
- Identify "trust-breakers" early in the life of your team, and eliminate these as obstacles to collaboration
- Gain a model for your team's "Trust Charter" to gain new levels of trust and collaboration
