IPMA-HR ER Diversitydtg.com Trust is the “secret sauce” Do you trust your management? Do you trust your leadership? Do you trust your boss? Do you trust your peers? Do your trust your subordinates? Without trust – there is no way you or your organization can be World Class?
IPMA-HR ER Diversitydtg.com TRUST is the critical success ingredient often missing in organizations Stephen M. R. Covey – in his book: The Speed of Trust talks about Trust - Taxes and Dividends When there is high trust – there is an actual dividend for this trust – tasks, work, progress, cooperation, collaboration - success is easier When there is low or nonexistent trust – there is an actual tax – tasks, work, is harder, indifference, bogged down, sabotage I highly recommend you read this book for your community, for your kids, for your families and jobs, of course…
IPMA-HR ER Diversitydtg.com Trust Defined “Trust means confidence. The opposite of trust is suspicion. When you trust people, you have confidence in them – in their integrity, and in their abilities. When you distrust people, you are suspicious of them – of their integrity, their agenda, their capabilities or their track record.”S.M.R. Covey “It is behind, and at the root, at the center of all of my work. Harassment – bias, prejudice, favoritism, disrespect, poor treatment, discrimination, etc.”M.V.
IPMA-HR ER Diversitydtg.com S.M.R. Covey says…. “The ability to establish, grow, extend, and restore trust with all stakeholders – customers/clients, business partners, coworkers – is the key leadership competency of the new global economy.” “Leadership is getting results in a way that inspires trust.”
