New Research Identifies How Trust Impacts Employee Work Passion

New Research Identifies How Trust Impacts Employee Work Passion | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

Trust at work is critical, but it can be difficult to pin down and address. Trust expert Daniel McAllister highlighted this challenge when he presented his initial research on the subject in 1995. McAllister opened with a quote from the book Behavior in Organizations.

Trust, in the form of relational trust, has been the cornerstone of Anthony Bryk's research in schools. The more trust the more schools and people succeed.
Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, June 1, 8:43 AM

I think trust is developed and sustained when an employee knows that a manager has employees' interests in view, when decisions made will enable an employee to do his or her best work. And when decisions might seem to stymie that work, the manager is willing and able to have a frank conversation about the decision and how the employee and the manager should handle the likely impacts. We have to remember that sometimes having an employee's best interests in view means being able to counsel that employee about unexpected options.

Being trusted is important in all relationships.  It turns out that it also impacts how well we work.

Do you express a positive attitude toward the objective or goal to be accomplished? 

(From the article): Sometimes the only time that a person may hear from their manager is when they haven’t performed as expected. This leaves people thinking that the only time anyone cares what they do is when they make a mistake. Rather than allowing people to constantly guess whether or not they are performing as expected, you should take every opportunity to express heartfelt appreciation for the efforts of others whether the task be small or large. You also want to encourage others to express appreciation to members of the team. Cultivating a culture of appreciation will increase both morale and productivity.

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes

Not long ago, most discussions of leadership were about leaders – their personality traits, how to identify and groom those with ‘leadership potential,’ and what were the skills that leaders employed.

I dont believe it's the new core, it's been there all along, perhaps we are only just taking notice. Do you agree?

The Cost of Distrust

The Cost of Distrust | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Distrust commands a very handsome price. It destroys initiative, damages relationships, creates a toxic environment and reduces competitiveness.

Trust is earned. Parker Palmer said authority (trust) is authored in the words and actions of a person. My experience is there is not much trust in schools.

What if I told you that mistrust could kill our individual aspirations, cripple our personal and business relationships, strip the muscle from our most powerful leaders, and crush the productivity and morale of our best and brightest people? Would I have your attention? Then why don’t we give trust the attention it deserves?

Live the art of your life and leave a masterpiece

Live the art of your life and leave a masterpiece | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

The most basic of the twenty-four principles or elements of the Universe found in the Indian holistic healing practice of Ayurveda is called “Prakruti” or creativity. As human beings, we are first and foremost creators. Our individual creativity is the essence of life on this planet. What we create is the only tangible thing that we leave behind when we die. Our life is the canvas, our intention the brush strokes, our emotions the paint.

Do masterful artists let paintings that they have painted long ago decide how they will look at their life upon waking up each morning? Do the master artists use their creative energy and spend time repainting the same picture over and over because they have decided that the previous copies aren’t masterpieces yet? I see master artists painting new pictures everyday knowing that each one is unique and will speak to and inspire people regardless of how it is viewed. Once a painting is done, does the artist sit in the gallery where it is displayed in order to gauge the reaction, feelings, and thoughts that others take away when viewing it? While sitting there, is the artist apologizing to those who don’t like it, reasoning with those who are angered by it, or smiling with those whose heart was opened by it? I see the artist doing what they do best, what they are here to do, regardless of what others say or think. Do they paint what is in their heart and what they feel passionate about? Is their drive fueled by a knowing that this contribution will be their mark on the world? Faith is placed in the idea that their masterpieces will speak to other lonely artists, whose lives will change the second they set eyes on this art; a knowing that others will use these masterpieces as their inspiration. You have no idea of the masterpieces that YOU are creating for others, every day. Stop looking at your old pictures and wishing you would have painted them better. They are already in the gallery inspiring those who can see them. Do what you do best, what you are here to do. Never stop painting!

    “My brain is only a receiver, in the universe, there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength, and inspiration. – Nikola Tesla

The brain or mind are not where intelligence is found. In addition, creativity seldom makes an appearance in those areas. If you are talking about simply regurgitating facts, the brain areas associated with memory are simply doing their job. However, we are interested in creative, inspired, passionate, channeled information in which the whole organism is the receiver. And only a certain few, very personal factors need to be in play to reach such a state. No standardized test or exam can glean this information about an individual. Hence, this is why it continues to remain so illusive. Dare we say that perhaps it is in its intimate, individual relationship with this connection, personal or otherwise, that the creative expression can unfold in its full beauty. The mere idea of producing it or standardizing it would be to extinguish it.

    “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein

So the question now leads to the idea of cultivating this pure human connection to all that is, was, and ever will be. Indeed, all information can be accessed from here. It is where the wellspring of creativity thrives. Of course, no one individual can see it all. Yet each, if open, will get what they need and want from such connection. The act of defining it would be to cheapen it. For example, how does one define love? There are the descriptions of the physical reactions such as increased heart rate, body temperature and respiration. Yet these would not compare in the slightest, or be able to describe to the unexperienced, what is truly happening since these are only attributes of increased physical activity.

To truly connect, one first needs to have a knowing that shakes them loose from their current, purposely-limited belief system. Such a system is set upon dis-empowering individualism in the name of the collective. In its truest sense, the collective is important but, in this day and age, that idea has been hijacked and co-oped. Dr. Eric Pearl says it best in his book The Reconnection when he states that “we have difficulty understanding the concept that we are all one. If we were the true embodiment of that concept, there wouldn’t be any lessons to be experienced. The ego gives us the identity to experience the lesson in terms of a very specific viewpoint – ours.”

    “You have to be a light to yourself in a world that is utterly becoming dark.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti

It boils down to trusting in your process no matter how it presents itself. Follow your intuition, for it is connected to all information outside space and time. If it checks out with your intuition (gut feeling), then send it to the heart to put it into your field of coherence. By mixing that information with your heart’s large, abundant electromagnetic field, you are supercharging it. Only use your mind if some left-brain tasks need to be handled as things unfold. Your analytical mind and its negative voice are essentially blind and impotent when attempting to see an entire situation or attempting to create. The mind is not meant to run your life or seek out inspiration. It’s only there to serve as a tool to accomplish tasks. It’s really that simple.
