The fundamental challenge for any team of two or more people is trust. When there is lack of trust, issues about who does what, who has the ideas, who sets the agenda, and who gets credit bloom into conflict, politics, and poor results.
To build trust in a team, we start with ourselves. We choose to see things differently. We trust that it’s not personal, that there are room and abundance for all here, and that we can handle whatever comes up, when it comes up, should it come it.
When we make that shift, the conflict, politics, and poor results melt away because they have nothing to push against anymore.
In your corner,
PS: Trust me; it’s true.
