”Trust each other again and again. When the trust level gets high enough, people transcend apparent limits, discovering new and awesome abilities for which they were previously unaware.” --David Armistead

How strong is the level of trust in your organization?  Do your employees trust you?   The level of trust has a great impact on individual and organizational effectiveness.

The ability to establish a high level of trust is vital to leadership effectiveness.  According to the authors of Building the High-Trust Organization, there are five dimensions of trust – “competence, openness/honesty, concern for employees, reliability, and identification.” 

Statistics about Trust

  • Employees who trust their senior management bring back 108% value to their share holders. On the other hand, employees who do not trust their senior executives only bring 66% back to their share holders. http://www.sideroad.com/consultants/Management-Consultant-Deb-Clifford.html
  • 21% of workers feel their boss is untrustworthy (CareerBuilder)
  • Nineteen per cent of employees “rarely” trust their managers to make the best decisions, and  as many as 57 per cent say they only “occasionally” trust their managers, according to a recent survey by Right Management.
  • Employees’ confidence in the CEO’s ability to do their job is the most important factor in breeding trust among the workforce. Almost as important is the CEO’s ability to demonstrate a strong sense of personal integrity. This quality is the foundation of trust and grows in importance with seniority.  Leadership Trust Index
