absence of trust

Is it possible for a team to function when there is an absence of trust?

The truth is……unlikely!  There may be opportunities for basic functionality but for any team to progress to its full potential, team members need to be able to trust one another.  When things are running well and smoothly, the cracks can be hidden but as soon as difficulties or problems surface the inability of team members to trust one another will hold back the team.

Trust can be learned, mastered and developed….work on it – if not you will suffer in the mire known as the absence of trust.
