If you are working right now with someone leading you, you will eventually go on to lead people, unless of course, you choose otherwise. And no matter what position you are in, trust is the only cement that binds a team together.
Here are the 3 secrets of how leaders can build a team that trusts each other:
1. Start by hiring people whom you can trust first, instead of trusting them later.
2. Remove all layers of power. Make access to information democratic.
3. Encourage (by doing it yourself) to communicate, especially when it is difficult to do so.
Nothing beats a team that trusts each other.
Nothing saves a team that doesn’t.
