Trust is the Foundation of Teams. Learn how to trust one another to become a productive and cohesive team!

Trust is the foundation of a productive team.  No other type of trust is as important as vulnerability based trust to create cohesion within a team.

During this workshop, participants will learn :

  • What the term “vulnerability-based trust” means
  • Understand the team’s current trust level
  • Learn about the team’s DiSC styles and how the styles impact trust
  • Understand how trust impacts team productivity
  • Establish an action plan

Participants will also take part in different trust building activities designed to give participants a chance to get to know one another a little better and to provide them a low-risk opportunity to practice vulnerability in a safe environment.  Team Building activities will also address the behaviours seen in low trust teams and behaviours seen in high trust teams.

Here are a few example of behaviours see in low without trust teams:

  • Conceal their weaknesses and mistakes from one another
  • Hesitate to ask for help or provide constructive feedback
  • Don’t offer help to people outside of their own areas of responsibility
  • Jump to conclusions about the intentions and aptitudes of others without attempting to clarify them
  • Fail to recognize and tap into one another’s skills and experiences
  • Waste time and energy managing their behaviours for effect
  • Hold grudges
  • Find reasons to avoid spending time together

Here are the advantages of having high trust within the team:

  • Makes better, faster decisions
  • Taps into the skills and opinions of all members
  • Avoids wasting time and energy on politics, confusion,
  • and destructive conflict
  • Avoids wasting time talking about the wrong issues and revisiting
  • the same topics over and over again because of a lack of buy-in
  • Creates a competitive advantage
  • Is more fun to be on!
