When we lack that interpersonal foundation of trust to stand on, we find it more difficult to do the hard, but necessary, work of being an effective team member. And this starts with each of us embracing the behaviors that foster effective communication and collaboration in the workplace. These behaviors don’t necessarily already exist in every one of us— especially when we’ve been working alone in our basements for over a year!—but they are skills we can learn.
Fundamentally, effective teamwork requires us to be vulnerable—sharing our opinions, freely debating ideas with colleagues, holding one another accountable, and knowing when to ask for help and when to say we’re sorry.
One of the core behaviors of the Five Behaviors model is Trust.
