It has been said by countless authors and researchers that leadership is almost all about relationships. And relationships simply do not work without a foundation built on trust. Unfortunately there has been a serious decline in the quality of trust between organizations and employee during the first decade and a half of the twenty-first century. This is particularly in regard to financial institutions, politicians, and big business but also in the relationships between employee and supervisor.
According to the Gallup organization, one of the biggest differentiators of employee engagement is the trust between employee and organization leadership. The more employees trust their boss and feel trusted in return, the greater their level of engagement and performance. As employees experience higher levels of trust, they feel more respected and have more respect for their organization and their manager. This translates into increased discretionary effort and greater productivity which translates into more profit on your bottom line.
