Is trust a part of your organizational culture?

When trust is present in a team or organization, energy is high, communication flows easily, and people are motivated to do more than they are asked to. High trust organizations embrace healthy tension, and in that environment good ideas get heard and implemented quickly. Things get done faster, with less effort, and work is a lot more fun. Conversely, when trust is absent, teams, departments and organizations move slowly, experience more conflict and are guarded in their communication. Which one sounds more like your organization?

Trust is the cornerstone of relationships and the root of personal and organizational power.

We all recognize that trust is a key factor in healthy personal relationships, yet we often lose sight of how equally integral it is in professional relationships with colleagues and customers; and how important all these relationships are to an organization’s performance. Trust is the basis of our ability to build relationships and to persuade and influence others, making it critical to personal and organizational success.

When trust is part of the organizational culture, people work together with speed and ease.

In today’s constantly changing marketplace, the company who responds first with what the customer wants usually wins. Trust inside an organization is paramount to achieving the speed-to-market that defines this competitive advantage. When trust is present in the workplace, new ideas and new strategic goals are explored and embraced more fully, causing people to work together better as a team to achieve them. Think about how people usually react to change and untried information when trust isn’t present and it’s easy to see how trust can be the determining factor in the success or failure of the speed-to-market of your initiatives, large or small.

Customers like to do business with people and organizations they can trust.
Do your customers trust you?

When trust is present, individuals and teams work with each other and with customers more effectively. This is especially critical for organizations delving into the unfamiliar territory of new markets and new products. Remember, the way people in your organization communicate and interact with each other is most likely the way they communicate and interact with your customer.
