Building Trust Remotely

Trust Building Workshops

Build a trusting, high performing team using clear communication techniques that make your members feel heard. Our trust building workshops cover interpersonal skills that teach you to act appropriately in challenging situations and achieve successful collaborations in the
workplace.

Trust is the foundation of a high-performing work environment. Teams that have healthy communication, high motivation and enjoy collaborations have to start with a trusting relationship. Conflicts begin when leaders ignore the key issues that cause dysfunction in a team.

In today’s world, leaders need to throw out the top-down approach of hierarchy and dominance in the workplace. Building trust requires professionals to shift their focus to encouraging open conversations, embracing vulnerability and improving listening skills to involve a team in a decision-making process.

We offer 2 trust building workshops that target different team cultures:

1. Workshop 1: For professionals who want to hold productive and drama-free collaborations
2. Workshop 2: For leaders who want to handle conflicts and dysfunction in their team with ease

Who Should Join Our Trust Building Workshops?

Our trust-building workshops are for professionals and leaders who want to:
Have more efficient and productive collaborations with their team and clients
Build high performing teams using strong and clear communication techniques
Handle conflicts without losing the trust of your team or clients

Trust Building Workshop: Workshop 1

The workshop utilises a 3-step process that teaches you to acquire accurate information before acting. Workshop 1 equips you with the key questions you should be asking your team to build trust instead of creating conflicts.

Trust Building Workshop: Workshop 2

Workshop 2 dives into the Five Dysfunctions of a Team to target the causes of conflict and drama in the workplace. By identifying unproductive behaviours, leaders can then work on them with a set of guidelines that develop their leadership skills. Workshop 2 teaches professionals to harness positivity in arguments and turn them into healthy and constructive discussions instead of personal attacks. Using the foundation of trust, leaders will learn to navigate conflicts and build high performing teams.

Create a trusting environment in the workplace that encourages honesty and open conversations. Leaders should set an example by being vulnerable with their team and should not be afraid to show their faults.

Avoid artificial harmony that could cause further tension in a team. Don’t ignore controversial, touchy topics and allow all members to voice out their opinions so that conflicts can be solved quickly.

Be sure in your decisions and stick to them or risk losing direction. Learn to align the team on objectives and priorities to avoid unclear instructions and unproductive delays.

Learn to accept responsibility as a leader if you’ve made a mistake. By modelling this behaviour, your team will not be afraid of taking accountability for their actions instead of blaming it on others.

Build a collaborative team that aims to reach goals and results together. Encourage achievement-orientated mindsets that bounce back from failures.

Frequently Asked Questions!

  • Can you guarantee that Building Trust Remotely will increase trust at my workplace?
    BTR stands a better chance of increasing trust levels at the workplace if enough people at your workplace begin applying the BTR tools so that there is behaviour and culture change. We highly recommend that two other people from your company attend the training so that you have the support you need to keep applying these tools beyond the workshop.
  • What difference will it make if I attend the training, when my boss is the problem?
    That is a great question. And the fact is, we don't have control over how others behave. We only have control over how we do. What BTR will do for you is give you the tools to manage your own responses. That way, you will come across as being calm and professional even if someone else is not. Managing your state will also allow you to have clarity, and to make evidence-based decisions. BTR isn't a magic wand for changing other people. But it is a strong clear process for reducing the time you personally spend in unnecessary conflict around a lack of trust.
  • Why should I invest in Building Trust Remotely, when we could just run a team building event like we have in the past?
    Team building events are great. And they would also be a good investment if they result in your team having new skills for building trust, most especially when it's difficult. With BTR, we promise that participants will leave with tools they can apply for life to build trust at work or at home. BTR may not have the same levels of rah! rah! rah! fun that a team builing activity has. And what's important is, participants of a BTR workshop will leave with effective skills to make thinking visible especially when we're online, so that there is better trust.
  • How is building trust remotely different from building trust in-person?
    There certainly are similiariities. What BTR does is, it addresses the how-to of visible thinking. When we are online, visible thinking makes it easier to build trust because so much is unknown about what other people are thinking or doing when we are working remotely. BTR will give you the tools to make thinking visibile in a way that is pyschologically safe and respectful. And when there is visible thinking, there is more trust.
