  • Identify and discuss individual strengths and weaknesses – during a team meeting ask the team to identify the strengths of the others in the team, what do they value about their colleagues?
  • Ask for help – as a leader show your vulnerability, GO FIRST! Don’t conceal areas that you need to develop and use others skills, no one in a team is good at everything.
  • Give feedback and apologies where needed. Provide ongoing and useful feedback so people never wonder where they stand with you or their co-workers. Uncertainty feeds fear. Fear erodes trust.

Trust transforms individuals into a team
