Trust is essential to an effective team, because it provides a sense of safety. When your team members feel safe with each other, they feel comfortable to open up, take appropriate risks, and expose vulnerabilities.
People want their leaders to be ethical. If employees believe their leaders have good intentions, they are more to likely to be committed them.
No one likes to deliver bad news or show weakness. But secure leaders know to ask for help, say what they don't know, and admit when they've made a mistake.
Uncertainty causes stress. When leaders keep employees in the dark about company goals and strategies, they can't connect to the purpose behind their work. So it's critical organizations share greater goals and strategies with their team.
People want to be trusted to manage their own work. When you tell people that you trust them to get the job done, they are motivated to prove you right. It makes them feel that their work has an impact.
When a team is bonded and has real concern for each other as people, they are going to work harder and help each other. They don't want to let people they care about down. It's critical to create an environment where it's easy to form these connections.
People liked to be appreciated for their good work. If they work hard without recognition, it kills their motivation. So it's important to praise your employees when they do good work.
Conflict is inevitable on any team. It may feel good to place blame, but it doesn't solve the deeper issues. Use "I" statements to express how you feel, and actively listen to what others say in response.
