So what is trust anyway?
To trust is to have confidence, faith or hope in someone or something. It’s about believing one’s ability and relying on each other to do what we say we’ll do. The relationship between colleagues and bosses is very important as well. Without these, there is no room for trust to grow.
Trust is very hard to gain in the modern world. It is very hard to get things done when there is no trust. Nobody wants their boss breathing down their neck, checking on work updates because they don’t trust them.
How to build trust in the workplace?
After going on so much about trust, how exactly can we ensure that it is present in the workplace? I have listed some ways below that you can follow to work on building trust.
#1 Making expectations clear
The amount of work to be done should be fixed and a deadline should be given for the employees. Everybody should be clear on what is expected of them so that there would be no confusion and miscommunications.
If both sides don’t know what each other wants, it can lead to resentment and frustration. If not resolved, it may result in employees leaving the company. Setting certain expectations can prevent that from happening. Some of the steps you can follow are:
● Defining the expectation
● Using simple language
● Breaking down the goals
● Getting feedback
● Follow up on the assigned task
#2 Be honest and supportive
