For managers to inspire commitment and teamwork among company employees, it's imperative that employees trust their supervisors. Author Paul Ludwick believes communication is the key to developing this trust. Using an innovative concept called 'trust loops," managers and supervisors can solicit the contributions of those in the work group, creating a loop of cooperation. With the newfound trust, both the manager and the employees will find satisfaction and success in the workplace.
Most managers and supervisors view employees as their company's most important resource but fail to fully utilize the talents of their people. By developing personal, yet professional relationships, not only will the employees work harder, but they will also want to work.
Ludwick clearly communicates practical ways that a leader can involve a group in its own best performance.
