Develop Trust

Trust is the foundation for everything we do. But what do we do when it’s broken — or not shared by everyone on a team?

Why Focus on Trust?

Trust is the foundation for everything we do, and if we can learn to trust one another more, we can have unprecedented human progress.

In this Teamraderie Journey, your team will participate in three live, expert-led, interactive experiences together. You will take a crash course on trust: how to build, maintain, and restore it when lost. More importantly, you will do this as a team and contextualize all that you learn to make your team and workplace a more trusting environment.

What are the components of Trust?

To develop and build trust, we must understand the components of trust – authenticity, empathy, and logic.

If you sense that I am being authentic, you are much more likely to trust me. If you sense that I have real rigor in my logic, you are far more likely to trust me. And if you believe that my empathy is directed towards you, you are even more likely to trust me.

When all three of these things are working, we have great trust. But if any of these three gets shaky or starts to wobble, trust is threatened.

I experience the real you.

I know you can do it; your reasoning and judgement are sound.



I believe you care about me and my success.

Does your ideal team look like this?
  • Team members trust one another
  • Building (and maintaining) trust becomes a priority
  • Team members communicate well to increase trust
  • Team members frequently express appreciation for others
In this journey, you will learn:
  • Why people trust you in some cases — but not others
  • How to identify where you build (and lose) trust
  • How to express appreciation

Start Your Team Trust Journey

1. Assessment

Before your team’s first experience, you will all take a short survey to gauge where your team is at.

2. Experiences

Your team will participate in four curated experiences in a sequence developed in collaboration with Frances Frei designed to build and optimize your team’s trust.
Curated Experiences for Your Trust Journey
Don’t let your team be a bust – help build their trust. Your team will really jive – while listening to award-winning poet and songwriter IN-Q Live. Then your team will feel heard – while they come up with their own spoken word.
Logic, Reasoning, Judgement
Once upon a time there was a team that learned how to drive the narrative through storytelling. Along the way, they boosted their trust, compassion, and empathy. Hint: It is your team at the end of this experience!
How can your team enhance their empathy? What if we said…Improv! In this active experience, you and your team will learn how to put yourself in someone else’s shoes, respond to their emotions, and co-create a scene with them. This helps to develop social skills and the ability to understand and connect with others, which is a key aspect of empathy.

3. Practices

After each experience, you’ll receive weekly tips, exercises, and activities to put into practice with your team to continue building upon what you learned together.
  • At your next 1:1
  • At your next standup
  • At your next team meeting
  • At your next review

You'll receive easy to action tips to use in your next...

4. Measurements

At the conclusion of your last experience, your team will re-take the original assessment to measure your progress as it relates to building and deepening team trust.

We really enjoyed the experience. I liked how turnkey it was — from the supplies, to the scheduling, to the calendar reminders, etc.”
