Every organization needs to pay attention to trust. Trust improves metrics including productivity, employee satisfaction and ethical brand value. It makes organizations better places to work, places where people want to invest time and plan careers.
After months of discussions, writing, sorting and voting, a small group of Trust Across America Trust Alliance members (I am honored to be among them) created a tool to stimulate conversations about organizational trust – The 12 Principles for TAPping Into Trust. If you are ready to invest in building trust, this tool will help you generate discussions within your organization.
Click the button to TAP INTO Trust and access the 12 Principles (in English, Spanish, French and Arabic).
How will you use the 12 Principles?
Here are questions you might ask your teams:
- Which of the 12 Principles For TAPping Into Trust are our strengths?
- Which represent areas where we need to do better?
- What would it look like if we improved how we follow each principle on our “do better” list? What is our plan for closing those gaps?
In other Trust Across America news, Barbara Kimmel has announced that “the 10th anniversary issue of TRUST! Magazine explores the role good governance plays in building trustworthy organizations through interviews with lead directors, board chairs and CEOs.” Check out the full issue Here.
When we choose to take the trust journey, we are always learning and improving. Let’s keep the conversation open. Share in the comments how these 12 Principles are helping you TAP Into Trust!
