Leading a team is about not only driving success and achieving goals but also fostering trust among employees. Trust in a leader leads to success for many reasons, one being that those who trust a team leader are 12 times more engaged than those who don’t, according to a recent global engagement survey.
These statistics shouldn’t come as a total shock to HR leaders or any other business leader. Trust is a foundational pillar for any healthy, stable relationship, not just professional ones. Being at the top, employers, managers, and team leaders have more influence over the workplace than other employees.
