When we design feature improvements for Business DNA, we look at the hot topics that are raised in our training and coaching events. Last year, a hot topic was, “How to build trust in a team”. I am excited to announce that today, we released an update to the Trust scoring model for Natural Behavior that will answer that very question.
Trust Scoring Upgrade:
This upgrade was a culmination of 5 years of psychometric research and independent validation by our team of PhD’s and data scientists. The bar is now raised for DNA Behavior as having one of the only independently validated psychometric measurements of Trust in the behavioral profiling industry. In addition, this measurement provides our Business DNA Coaches, Consultants and Users with the following in-depth insights (in addition to the other 54 additional behavioral attributes we measure):
- Trust and Skepticism
- Delegation and Controlling
- Openness and Suspicion
- Approachable and Questioning
- Relaxed and Exacting
If you want to know how to build trust in a team, you must first understand how your team builds trust. While asking questions and drilling in on details can build trust for some team members, that same activity may feel like a lack of trust to others. Trust building is not a one-time activity, but trust erosion can be. In order to build trust, you must consistently behave in ways that are seen to build trust with your team. Knowing how each member of your team responds naturally around trust can help you hit the right note with your team members and help you understand why something you do successfully with one person is failing with another.
How to measure trust in a team using Business DNA:
The Business DNA Natural Behavior assessment is an online questionnaire process that takes 10-minutes to complete. You and each one of your coworkers can spend just 10-minutes to complete their own assessment and compare your results. Each individual’s Trust score will be available in each individual’s 1-page factor Report, Workplace Operations Report and the Coaching Report.
