‘A team is a group of people who trust each other’

From my experience, both in the RAAF and in the corporate world, trust is at the core of a team’s ability to work together efficiently and effectively. Simon Sinekand Patrick Lencioni are both clear about the importance of trust for building a team, and the absence of trust being the first obstacle of a group to overcome.
Trust can be built quickly, and eroded just as fast. Some important questions for any team, and for any leader or manager to consider:
– What does it take to build trust with me?
– What would you to do to erode my trust?
– What actions can be taken to rebuild my trust?
In my opinion, the 3rd question is the most important and least thought of – after all, we all make mistakes and we can all learn. What does it take for you? Can your trust be rebuilt and earn again? Or is is once bitten, twice shy?
