Learn how to trust your colleagues!

Trust is something that is usually earned rather than gifted and without trust within the workings of a business, communication can become flawed, direction can be lost and ultimately the company can suffer as a result. Our blindfolded 4×4 challenge develops trust amongst colleagues. And it’s a real laugh too!…

5 Ways to increase trustworthiness

Trust underpins all good relationships – supplier and customer, team and leader, husband and wife.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said "Our distrust is very expensive".

Despite the technical advances of the last century, few leaders would argue that the way in which their teams interact with and depend on one another isn’t crucial to their organisation’s performance.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said “Our distrust is very expensive”.

During periods of uncertainty and restructure, trust in employers, team mates and leaders can be eroded, so along the road to recovery what can individuals do to rebuild trust?…

What can we learn from sports teams?

How will Spain motivate themselves for the next tournament?

Teams that are not motivated are flat and, unless they can totally overpower their opponent, unlikely to succeed. Motivation is giving players a reason to perform to the best of their ability to achieve team goals. This responsibility falls on the coach and the players. It takes a team effort to be mentally and physically prepared to play and to maintain a level of interest that puts your team in a position to win.

Do some team building by asking the right questions

Wouldn’t it be good to know that every decision you take over the next 12 months will be the right one. This may sound impossible but there is a way to significantly increase the likelihood of your decisions being correct.

Will these two have to build a relationship based on trust?

Trust, decisive leadership and openness will all significantly save time. Which one of these two asks the best questions?

A London restaurant, the Little Bay restaurant in Farringdon, has decided that with everyone watching the pennies, they will let their customers decide how much to pay for their meals throughout February.

“It’s entirely up to each customer whether they give £100 or a penny,” said the owner Peter Ilic. “All I’m asking is they pay me what they think the food and service is worth.”…
