Building Organizational Trust

For too long, trust has been considered as something vague and subjective. This program helps participants understand trust as an economic asset and a key indicator of a company’s long-term viability. It not only helps to decipher trust worthiness but also enhance it at personal and organizational levels for highest business impact.


The first and foundational behavior of an organization is trust. Unfortunately, the word trust is used and misused so often it may not impart the same meaning to everyone. The definition here is not centered around the ability to predict a person’s behavior based on experience. So, trust means a willingness to be completely vulnerable with one another, confidence among the employees of the organization that their co-worker's intentions are good and that there is no reason to be on guard or careful around them. Trust lies at the heart of a functioning, cohesive team.


When talking about best business leaders there are several people who come to mind who have been successful in taking their organization at higher levels. However, if you were to stand out as the best collaborative leader of the century it necessitates a trait that is different from others- i.e. the ability to build trust that enables diverse people to come together achieve a common goal.


Sometimes it’s during the process of coming clean about weaknesses that the biggest breakthroughs happen among the members in the organization. Giving people as much information as possible about who a person is and why this person gains insight and empathy, qualities that allow a team to build trust.


Harvard Business Review states Ray Chambers as the model for collaborative leader. Ray Chambers, a successful business leader with a passion to contribute enormously to the country, is the founder and cofounder of many NGO’s such as the Gates Foundation, International Red Cross, Malaria No More, National Mentoring Partnership and others to help the suffering. The unique trait of Ray was that he was a great social networker and he had ability to build such trust with the people that enabled him to bring diverse people come together to achieve a common goal.
