Many individuals and teams struggle with effective communication. They blame communication styles, personality differences, conduits for communicating, data overload, various physical locations, and more. While many of those reveal the friction and ineffectiveness of their interactions, they are simply symptoms, not the root cause.
We have found that a weak trust environment is truly at the heart of consistently poor information exchange. Using our Like An Owner® philosophy,we have identified three unique Trust Environments. One cultivates a spirit of Ownership, one enables a mindset of Renters and one facilitates the behaviors of Vandals. We have assembled a Trust Environment description that lists the characteristics of each. After taking the survey you can see the full description and where you believe your team lives. This survey takes three minutes.
For organizations, this survey can be made anonymous, customized, and given to you to distribute to your entire workforce. VPs and team leads can benefit significantly from understanding which Trust Environments their employees perceive themselves to be working in. Leaders will also be given access to the collective result of each question. Contact us today to put this handy tool in motion.
We define the spirit of Ownership as someone who brings their heart, head and hands to work. Not only do they do their job, but they bring passion and imagination to their role and responsibilities.
We define the mindset of Renters as someone who brings only their hands. They show up, they do their job, they go home.
We define the behaviors of Vandals as destructive. From gossip to silent saboteurs to lying, they directly hinder forward progress and thwart others from being fruitful.
At Hawks Agency, we are committed to challenge and empower leaders, teams and organizations to reach for Greatness. Making the effort to nurture a stronger trust environment enables that reality.
Often times teams, departments, and organizations have challenges with poor communication, ineffective processes, inefficient decision making, personnel conflict, finding solutions quickly, maintaining excellence, overcoming obstacles and so on. Those are simply symptoms of a weak trust environment.
