Trust Outcome Based Team Building Activities

Trust Outcome Based Team Building


People tend to only trust people that they know and understand. When you first start a team, it is important that you share your background with the team. Encourage the team to also share information about themselves and create opportunities for the team to socialize together. The better the team members get to know each other, the easier it will be for them to trust each other. When there is a general feeling of mistrust in a team no amount of team building will motivate the team members to work together. Communication is another essential component of trust building. When team leaders keep their team informed, they send a clear message that they trust their team members. When you give trust, you gain even more trust back.

Other Outcome Based Activities: Goal Setting, Leadership, Communication, Problem Solving, Cooperation, Resilience, Creative Thinking, Time Management, Decision Making
