Arguably, trust is the most important component of a corporate culture and so much, if not everything of a company’s strategy, is anchored in this foundation. Trust, in and of itself though is not an action but rather the outcome of actions fueled by the underlying belief system of the individuals leading the organization.
“Trust and engagement are twin engines; as you increase trust it drives engagement and becomes a virtuous upward cycle.
If people don’t trust you, they won’t engage no matter how many other drivers are working. Employees need to trust you have their best interests in mind.
When you move the needle on trust you will increase engagement.” Source: Leaders: Trust Can Change Everything « Linked 2 Leadership
