Why focus on building trust?
Far too much avoidable mistrust develops between really good people. This is most often the result of fear, ineffective coping mechanisms, and the willingness to settle for plateaued relationships. Bruce has a passion to help others break through these self-imposed limitations, and reduce unnecessary isolation in life and career.
1. What are some common reasons that people employ your services?
No two groups are the same, however there are some familiar workplace challenges that even the most successful organizations occasionally face:
- Accumulated stress and short-temperedness
- Turf-based thinking and behaviors
- Chronic conflict aversion
- Tacit endorsement of unhealthy team dynamics
- Disunity in priorities and ownership
- Difficult or altogether missing working relationships
- Unenthusiastic acceptance of change
- Willingness to settle for the above list!
The longer these conditions go on, the more that trust erodes in an otherwise healthy environment. Building Trust is brought in to constructively open up lines of communication and to arm individuals to build (or re-build) trust with their co-workers.
