Welcome to Approaches for Performance Excellence Ltd that looks at the latest CIPD report 'Focus on Trust in leaders'

'Trust' back in the spotlight

CIPD logo - trust'Trust' is the cornerstone of high performing teams. Yet despite all the guidance and support that organisations have received over recent years it is interesting to note the findings from the latest 'Employee Outlook' report from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development 'Focus on Trust in Leaders'.

What we see is the trust gap that sits between employees and their senior managers. It is important to state that this does not imply that senior managers are duplicitous or underhand, it just suggests that life and decisions at the top are not transparent to those that are affected - the staff.

The report goes on to ask 'And what do trustworthy leaders do to create a climate of trust?' Simply put, the answer lies in activities that senior managers already know: Be approachable, competent and consistent, act with honesty and integrity, inclusivity.
