In this episode, Hoots reviews The Lean Builder Blog on Building Trust In the Workplace – 3 Dos and Don’ts. In addition, Hoots on the Ground gives additional ways on how to build, create, and maintain trust. This is the first step in curating a successful lean project. Hoots also reviews the first trust episode (S1E8) and elaborates on ways to make it happen.
Here are some ways on building trust in the field:
No one takes blame, no one takes credit!
We don’t conceal information.
We communicate open and often!
We focus on people!
We request and implement feedback!
We call people by their name!
We show people respect!
Hoots tells the story about the Love Lab where John Gottman and Robert Levenson were able to predict, with a 90% accuracy, whether or not couples would remain together after only a few hours of meeting them! They discovered that it takes 5 goods to outweigh 1 bad!
Remember – Trust is difficult to gain, easy to break and tough to repair!
Building trust! That’s just what lean builders do!
