This month, I’ve seen sight of the first draft of the new profile test we are working on with top TD sales trainer and popular blog contributor, Nicci. The new test ‘Talent Dynamics for Sales’ is ideal for sales people to find out the best roles in selling for them and how they approach sales opportunities understanding their clients frequency and therefore buying decisions. Nicci will be running a breakout at the Trust Conference on Trusted Sales, so you can learn more about it there too!

Has There Ever Been A More Important Time To Build Trust?

There’s never been a more important time to build Trust.

With banks and entire economies collapsing around us, governments surrounded by covered up scandals… who can consumers and the public trust and by how much?

The Impact of Trust

It is the most trusted companies today are being the most successful. They are out performing their competitors by as much as 10 times.

In a Watson Wyatt 2002 study, high-trust organizations outperformed low-trust organizations in total return to shareholders by 286 percent.

As if that’s not exciting enough…

When Trust is consistently high, productivity speeds up, people feel more empowered and make better decisions. Accuracy levels increase. Absence decreases, turnover decreases. People have more fun and feel more connected to the organisation and team.

Consequently, the company performs at a much higher level, consistently.

We know from our experience, clients who have accelerated levels of Trust in their organisations,  go on to create results that have as much as doubled their revenues and profits. We hear of teams being told to go home in the evening, they are so engrossed in what they are doing, they didn’t notice how the time flew by!

Is Trust simply a buzz word that companies are banding about today?

Anyone who thinks Trust is simply a buzz word or an HR fad, is unfortunately missing the point.

Richard Barrett of the international Values Centre, asserts,

“that of all values, Trust is the most important to build internal cohesion of a high performance team”

Do you have high Trust?

High Trust is a measure that you are delivering Value consistently to your market or team. As you would expect, we have a series of sophisticated tools that we use to measure Trust with our clients.

However, you can already have a Trust ‘litmus measure’ based on what your customers or colleagues are saying.

The most Trusted companies are the ones that have clients returning time and again to purchase their products or services over and over because they are delivering Value consistently.

Apple has people sleeping on streets overnight to get hold of their latest product. Apple customers have such high levels of Trust in the organisation, they will pre-order the latest product without even seeing it first. This is because Apple focus on the best way they can deliver Value through being consistently innovative.

Trust in High Performing Teams

The most trusted individuals in a team are the ones who are consistently delivering Value to their colleagues in a way that it can be leveraged effectively.

An example of this would be a Creator profile who creates visionary strategies for the business unit, that are scalable and sustainable. Creating exciting new products and services that consumers want and need.

Or an Accumulator profile that ensures all the projects and processes are delivered on time and in the most efficient and timely way possible. Checking all the information and research to make sure the overall plan of action is the most risk averse and water tight.

Wherever you deliver Value consistently, as an individual, a team or an organisation, you will see you can build Trust and you will continue to have a place in the market or the team or organisation.

Can you improve  Trust levels?


Trust is established and grown when:

  1. You say what you are going to do
  2. It is seen to be of Value by someone else (a team member or customer)
  3. You do what you said you would do, really well and consistently.

If you want to build more Trust, then focus at delivering more Value consistently.

Once you lose Trust, can you ever regain it?

There’s an old saying you may have heard.

“Once trust is gone it’s gone forever.”

Well that’s not strictly true.

If you follow the same principles, you can re-build Trust by consistently delivering Value. It may take longer but it’s not gone forever!

Where Trust was already really high and something goes wrong, its much easier to get the Trust back quickly. There’s enough in the ‘trust bank’ to already believe the person or organisation will fix the situation and do what they said they would do.

If there was low Trust in the first place its certainly harder to get it back but it’s always possible to regain and replace Trust if both parties are open to it.

Think of a relationship you had, where Trust was lost for some reason, if both parties feel the win of being together in a relationship is enough, then they figure out how to build trust.

Sometimes you just need to ask the other party if they are willing enough to want to rebuild it…

TDHQ April News

I had the opportunity to interview best selling author Steve Kotler about his new book The Rise of Superman this month. It was truly fascinating stuff!

I read Stevens new book and soon found the entire team were also reading it and we were comparing notes and insights. In the interview I find out from Steven, how top athletes reach a peak state called Flow (also known as being in the Zone) and how being in this Flow state increases productivity, attention levels, creativity and the ability to make life and death decisions in split seconds.

More importantly, I got Steven to explain how this relates directly to you in your role and how you can create a high Flow state in the workplace, that can get you amazing results, with some simple conditions being created…

Here’s a copy of the recording in case you didn’t get chance to tune in live last week. If you have a team this is really crucial information to know. Google and Zappos are already implementing this knowledge with their people…

This month I’ll be interviewing Roger James Hamilton on Trust and Flow. How they are interdependent and that by understanding there are some simple actions we can take, whereby we can create incredible cultures in our organisations, that the people within them can create phenomenal results… More details to follow on this in May but you can already save the date.

Interview with Roger James Hamilton – May 14th 0830 BST.
