In today’s fast-paced, globally connected world in which we live, an organization’s successes and failures can be tweeted across the internet in a matter of seconds.

Building Trust Inside Your Team: Creating a Strong, Cohesive Group

Building Trust Inside Your Team: Creating a Strong, Cohesive Group | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever managed people who didn't trust one another? If you have, then you'll know how challenging and draining this can be.

A team without trust isn't really a team: it's just a group of individuals, working together, often making disappointing progress. They may not share information, they might battle over rights and responsibilities, and they may not cooperate with one another. It doesn't matter how capable or talented your people are, they may never reach their full potential if trust isn't present.
