Topic 2 Building trust inside the team

Trust means that both parties in the same workplace are fulfiling their duties to the best of their ability and they can rely on each other.

Ms Judith E. Glaser (Founder, The CreatingWE Institute) developed the TRUST model which stands for the acronym:

Transparency Respect Understanding Shared Success Tell the Truth

Transparency is about sharing fears and communicating openly with others. Respect means that even if teammates disagree in the workplace, they still value each other’s opinion. Understanding between people increases empathy and trust between co-workers. Shared success will benefit the group as whole and the company’s growth. By Telling the Truth, firstly you are more open to see clearly your behavior and secondly you help your team members trust you.
