Trust between team members is critical for performance. Trust is a value that many people share, but how they demonstrate it and when they offer it varies widely. Even if people say they trust each other in general, there are often conditions where that trust can erode and become and unspoken barrier that affects the team.

When listening to people talk about trust, be particularly aware of the behaviors they identify as demonstrating trust. This is a fundamental place where misunderstandings occur. Most people value trust, but the behaviors they use to show it can be different and even opposite. In addition, some people show trust differently depending on where they are. What they do at home or with family may not be what they do at work. Identify and talking the implications of those behaviors is the first step toward discovering acceptable ways to deal with differences.
During this workshop you will realize the different ways how people express trust. You will become aware about behaviors and ways to interpret them.
