As you have already learned in our last blog posts, the trust in your team has a lot to do with your long-term success. Today, you will learn from us how you can strengthen your trust in the long term.
1. Open and honest communication:
To build trust, it is important that you communicate openly and honestly with each other. This creates transparency and prevents misunderstandings and conflicts. For example, you can have an open conversation as a team once a week, where everyone can share their opinions and thoughts to better understand what makes everyone tick.
2. Take responsibility:
If you take responsibility and keep your word, it strengthens trust in the team. It is important that everyone takes their tasks seriously and carries them out reliably. Everyday exercise: For example, you can introduce a responsibility system in which everyone is responsible for certain tasks or projects and ensures that they are reliably completed.
3. Feedback and appreciation:
Feedback and appreciation can build trust in your team by making sure everyone feels seen and valued. It can help to have a weekly feedback session, for example, where everyone can share their opinions and thoughts and give feedback.
4. Shared experiences and activities:
Shared experiences and activities can help you get to know and trust each other better. This can be, for example, a joint lunch, playing table tennis or a teambuilding day.
It is important to note that it takes time to build trust. Teams should be patient and work continuously on the above exercises to build a healthy and strong trust among themselves.
