Since the early 2000s “trust” has been the “gold” standard trait that teams should invest in developing so that they can achieve performance results with less friction and stress. Yet, many teams still fall short of fulfilling their potential. The missing link is “respect.” If team leaders stop at trust the team will fall short of achieving its potential. As we’ve seen in recent years in society in general basic respect for fellow humans seems to be lacking. You can trust someone you don’t respect, but you cannot respect someone you don’t trust, so it’s time to get beyond trust and aspire to a higher standard.
