Trust is not only the essence of a personal life relationship but also is a critical factor in team management for the success of projects. Developing trust within the team on a specific project or towards one goal might be easier than actually maintaining it throughout. As a leader, you would definitely wish for a team that has the ability to come up with best thinking and share the brainpower for the sake of organization.
There are three basic components for developing and enhancing the trust among team. These three components include competence, common goals and motives. Here is how these three components will work for you:
- You being the leader need to keep a close check on the workforce if they are working together for the same organizational goals and end results. As a team comprises of people with different practical exposures, so the need is to revise the documented goal in order to kick off the project to develop clarity. Every employee in a team must know what they are supposed to do.
- In a team, every member is trying to achieve some goal but their competence remains dubious as there is no evidence for who did which part of the job. Being the manager, you can take the help of social media tools where individuals might shine better while answering the questions. In addition to this, commend team members for their work and performance. Last but not the least, delegate the work as it would help the employees to recognize each others’ roles.
- Judging the employee’s competency and speculating about the caliber of a worker is easier to do but proving it is hard. Being a manager, you can develop standards and charters for communication among the workers and ensure to meet those standards. In case of any problem, make sure to discuss openly to end the speculations.
