TRUST enables cooperation, encourages information sharing, and increases openness and mutual acceptance.
Being trustworthy is one of the keys to leadership success and an essential component of successful working relationships between leaders and followers. (2017 Research by Ken Blanchard Company)
Trust is at the heart of every relationship and is critical in the workplace.
Research shows that lack of trust in the workplace creates disengagement, low morale, lack of commitment, and reduced productivity. In fact, the primary factor affecting employee turnover is whether a trusting relationship was developed between the manager and the employee.
