Trust is essential to wellbeing. But look around today and we see we are smack in the middle of a trust crisis where social, healthcare, economic, media and political distrust imperil our organizations. I spoke with Stephen MR Covey, bestselling author of The Speed of Trust , about practical strategies to lead ourselves and our organizations out of this mess. His father, Dr.
Today, it may be harder than ever to grow that bank balance. Forces that seem to be beyond our control are draining all our trust bank accounts and diminishing wellbeing. How does it work? Stephen MR Covey shares three essential practices we can all use to increase trust and create wellbeing in our organizations, our leadership, and in our lives. People become a little bit more careful, more cautious, more guarded, more suspicious. In this context, we come to work. According to the latest Vitality research from Six Seconds , people are more stressed out than ever before, short on time, equanimity, and resources, and they swim like mad without moving very far.
The solution is to take much greater care in our communication. You demonstrate respect for what you hear. You clarify expectations, and you focus on and agree upon a mutual process for accountability to those expectations. That includes giving the why behind the what , in other words, declaring your intent. What makes that gap? Caring is the root of the intent that builds credibility and trust, and out of that grows both better performance outcomes, and a better world.
One of the biggest barriers to creating a caring connection is the crossed wires of communication. We can get past many missed opportunities, Covey says, by simply declaring our own intention and checking our assumptions.
Instead, declare your intent. That means you give people the why behind the what. Direct communication is surprisingly challenging. The only way through is forward, which is why vulnerability — sharing our real selves — is an act of courage. But we can create a better world. Purpose : Liking what you do each day and being motivated to achieve your goals Social : Having supportive relationships and love in your life Financial : Managing your economic life to reduce stress and increase security Community : Liking where you live, feeling safe, and having pride in your community Physical : Having good health and enough energy to get things done daily.
The survey also disclosed that under one-third of millennials are very comfortable talking about life outside of work with their manager, yet those who do have twice the employee engagement. Here are the three key emotional intelligence factors in wellbeing :. Clarity of purpose is a cornerstone of wellbeing.
Our brains are wired to continuously make judgments. Covey says we can go a step further. She said the single greatest learning in her life was something she learned from her father, and that is this: to always assume positive intent. Covey points out the power of this simply-profound shift: When we assume positive intent, we unlock collaboration. Just imagine how much farther and faster they will go. According to the most recent Six Seconds State of the Heart Report, across countries, collaboration is the most quickly declining of the 18 key talents measured.
Perhaps this decline in collaboration is directly linked to research findings on decreasing trust. It makes practical steps like Assume Positive Intent even more rare and valuable. Then I remember: I can step back and choose my response. I have a space, I can choose.
I come back to that all the time. He was good on stage, and he was even better off stage. Of course, that is also central to trust. I learned that from him. Strengthen your own credibility. We need leaders that know how to create trust wisely in this low-trust world.
The best relationships are those in which people can trust each other. Perhaps most importantly, Covey reminds us that trust is something we can increase. Meaning, we first start with ourselves and we look in the mirror, and then we ripple out to our relationships, then to our teams, then to our organization, then to our external stakeholders, then to all society.
In all aspects of work and life, trust is a barometer of wellbeing. You can do it better, you can do it faster, and you can learn to make this happen.
