Organizational Trust: Strengthen and Restore Respect, Faith, and Integrity at Work
While the nature of day-to-day tasks and responsibilities certainly make up a large portion of employee job satisfaction, more often than not, the most influential aspect has to do with the interaction between colleagues. Organizations that promote a positive, supportive working environment or rather, those that emphasize a culture of trust are also those with the highest recruitment and retention rates -- this is because they lay the groundwork for effecting respect, faith, and integrity at all levels. In turn, personal attributes such as these have far-reaching effects on the organization's success -- they're more credible, productive, flexible, innovative, and able to adapt to changing circumstances and effectively handle crises.
Organizational Trust is about helping managers supervisors, and leaders to effect these outcomes by building, improving, or restoring an environment of trust. Participants begin by examining the quality of trust on an organizational and personal level (or how trustworthy others perceive them to be) and then reviewing the characteristics and behaviors which shape trust. They'll also learn to identify the warning signs of a low-trust organization, providing the opportunity to implement techniques for handling and combating distrustful behaviors before they escalate.
