What's Trust got to do with it

Cool trust quiz here.


Valid question...

What does trust have to do with work?

Isn’t that something we talk about in relation to our friends or family?


Actually trust is the basis of all relationships, and given we spend so much time at work and in contact with others, trust has lots to do with it.


So what is trust?

Trust is being able to predict what other people will do and what situations will occur.  

When you think about it this way, trust at work is really important.  If you can’t rely on those you are working with, and predict what will happen in a given situation work can get out of hand really quickly.


So here are three tips to help you develop trust at work…  

1. Be reliable.

When you say you are going to do something, make sure it gets done.  This will allow your work mates and boss learn to trust you


2. Don’t be a gossip.

If someone tells you something in confidence, keep it to yourself. If people know that you bag others or share their secrets when they aren’t around, they will start to believe you will bag them when they aren’t around, and this will mean they will struggle to trust you.


3. Be non-judgemental.

People will learn to trust you more if they feel like you aren’t judging them.
