Trust is valuable for a team to be successful. And it is hard enough to build when people see each other and work together every day. It is perhaps even more valuable when those people work remotely. More valuable, but even harder to create and maintain. Therefore, building trust is something worth working on. Unfortunately, too many people see trust as luck, happenstance, or something they expect from others, without thinking about their role in it.
Trust in many groups and institutions is at an all time low, and yet the need for trust has never been higher. If you are a leader with no trust challenges on your team, you are either doing something very right, or blissfully unaware of how a lack of trust is negatively impacting your results.
Building trust doesn’t happen automatically or by magic. Luck or good fortune won’t cut it. For our teams to thrive, we need higher levels of trust between the leaders and team members, and between team members. And without question, this is harder to do when people work remotely. That is why Wayne Turmel, the co-author of The Long-Distance Leader: Rules for Remarkable Remote Leadership, is leading a free webinar titled Building Real Trust on a Remote Team.
Where to Start
You may be (painfully) aware that the trust level on your remote team isn’t where you want it. Wayne will share some ways to diagnose the trust level – and help you see the connection between low trust and some other issues you may recognize. More importantly, he will give you tangible suggestions and best practices for overcoming trust gaps and helping build the trust that you need now more than ever.
This is going to be a powerful and practical webinar. Sign up now and put yourself on an intentional path to building trust even on your remote team. You will leave encouraged and with an action plan to make high trust a hallmark of your team, rather than something you are simply hoping for.
