One thing we see far too often inside of the corporate teams is they do not have the right structures setup in order for the team to connect and build trust. Open and honest dialogue internally is what we call “Real talk”.
Some interesting complaints that we often hear:
1. My team take too long to make decisions and productivity is suffering,
2. There is not enough collaboration occurring.
Now these decision-making actions, as a team, are really important, and collaboration is obviously important. But what is required here is trust. We know that strong interpersonal relationships are required for these two things to occur, which is derived in the foundation of trust. Leaders do not give their players enough time to build those relationships in order to speak openly and honestly.
