Most of us have learned when to trust people. We can spot the signs, hear the tone, read the body language, that says to our team members, “I trust you.” Bluntly, do they know it?
What do you do that shows people you trust them? What behaviors might give them some uncertainty; do you look over their shoulder a bit too much, do you have an opinion before they’ve finished talking, are you “down in the weeds,” etc., etc.? What will you work on this week so your best people will know you trust them? Then, what can you expect?
