The Team Trust Index measures the degree to which team members perceive the behaviors that build trust and the values that support them, and for the team to achieve its goals & objectives.
This tool will precisely help pinpoint the level of trust (or lack of it) from the behaviors displayed by the members. From Team Trust diagnostic, it helps us understand at what stage the group (‘the team’) is, in terms of its evolution to Collaborative high performance teams.
The Science behind it – Trust is the foundation of all fruitful relationships !
Relationships are formed as trust develops. When trust diminishes, relationships become more distant, often leading to conflict. Getting team members engaged and committed to the team’s purpose, values and vision requires a high level of trust. At the same time, being Trustworthy is Not Enough Everyone knows that trust is important, but being trustworthy does not necessarily build trust. It is behavior that builds trust, team members can be trustworthy, honest and ethical, and yet have other team members not trust them because of differences in behavioral style and different strengths and weaknesses in the behaviors that build trust. To increase effectiveness in building trust, team members need to take personal responsibility for their behavior and understand how it can affect the levels of trust other team members have for them.
Collaborative teams generate better ideas, have increased efficiency, share the workload and have a higher level of trust. When the teams have a higher level of trust, have mutual respect, open and honest conversations, effective decisions become the norm for team meetings.
