Welcome. Today we’re going to share our first example of trust issues within a client’s organization so you can gain from her experience. When she struggled to engage your employees, she called us, and here’s the scenario. Your client is a significant player in the field of R&D of manufacturing design. Her name’s Kate. Kate was recently promoted to VP of the design department due to her superior analytical skills, overcoming technical hurdles, and creating all sorts of great designs for the customers. However, multiple people in her department struggled with her leadership due to her insensitivity to their personal needs or local community involvement as company representatives. Some are even threatening to quit. Chuck, what did you do?

Well, John, after Kate took the trustworthy assessment, we were able to provide her with the data that illustrated for lower scores and relatability. Initially, she struggled to accept it, but after conversations with several peers and co-workers, she acknowledged that it really was a problem. She and I immediately laid out a schedule for frequent meetings with her team members, along with examples of when she had dropped the ball so others could relate to her when she needed to address challenging situations. Within three months, Kate had reenergized her team and built a stronger bond with each member. Knowing a team member’s level of trustworthiness and their weaknesses will help your insight into forming deeper relationships. You can identify your levels of trustworthiness at no cost at the address listed in this video. We hope you’ll take advantage of our research and see how you can build strong, lasting relationships at work and play.
