Trust is foundational for effective relationships and a sense of belonging in the workplace. Teams that trust one another are more likely to have higher morale, increased creativity and innovation, loyalty, and retention. Mistrust can lead to work avoidance, self-protection, skepticism, low productivity, and turnover. Building trust is essential for people to show up at work as their best selves and achieve optimal organizational outcomes.
But different cultures have different ways of building trust. What makes you trust people? What if your ways of building trust are not effective in other cultures? CIL helps individuals and teams understand different trust-building styles and develop skills and strategies to strengthen relationships and trust across cultural differences.
