ST. LOUIS - April 29, 2024 - PRLog -- Kim Baker, a highly respected corporate team builder/designer, speaker, and owner of Vivid Performance Group, says low trust within organizations can be devastating for a business' people, culture, and bottom line.

"Trust is crucial to the success of your organization and even more so now to teams," Baker said. "Research indicates 95% of employees or contractors are team-based and spend over 50% of their work time in collaborative exchanges, yet many spend their time fighting, avoiding and blamestorming, and trust levels are on life support."

According to Baker, the impact can be costly. Low trust is linked to a per-employee cost of nearly $3,000 per year for median-range employees earning $90,000 in combined salary and benefits.

Conversely, she said, when trust is moderate or high, people feel safe, are excited to collaborate and life seems better in the workplace, Yet, sadly most trust-building efforts fail, not for lack of intent but a lack of knowledge.

"Most leaders wrongly assume that they are highly trustworthy and that trust among team members and in the organization overall is better than it actually is," Baker pointed out.  "Trust is subjective and means different things to different people so we gauge our own and other's trustworthiness against our own implicit criteria, feelings, and intentions which can have a large negative impact."

"That is why Vivid Performance Group has launched Trust Better, Together™ a practical, actional, game- changing process and suite of solutions that activate, elevate and perpetuate trust in teams, organizations, and leader relationships.

Powered by the Reina ® Trust Building model, a scientifically grounded framework, Vivid uncovers where trust stands through a valid measurement tool, and supports, and guides employees to take appropriate actions to foster greater trustworthiness.

"We move the needle on trust because with our process teams, leaders or organizations take ownership and the first steps to build greater trust. They develop a plan to integrate chosen trust behaviors into all interactions, optimize accountability, progress through systematic pulse checks, and hardwire trust into their mission and results. Greater trust is proven to result in a big improvement in business culture, performance, and profitability."
