Can your team count on you? 5 tips for building trust
(page 2 of 2)
Tip #4: Be consistent.
Treat all employees fairly, and consistently enforce company policies. Employees will notice inconsistency, and gossip about favoritism can quickly erode trust not only with you, but also among team members jockeying for position with you.
Tip #5: Show trust.
Trust goes both ways. Showing that you have trust and faith in your employees’ abilities, talents, and judgment inspires them to trust you. Demonstrate your trust in them by delegating key projects and recognizing achievements.
