The Trust Canvas is a tool that makes this transition natural and effective. Additionally, the introduction of the “Trust Manifesto” ensures that your principles and plans are not just “on paper” but are actively integrated into the team’s daily life.
We believe in the importance of eight key areas outlined in the Team Trust Canvas and make the following commitments:
- Transparency: We commit to being open and honest with each other.
- Interaction: We will communicate actively and effectively.
- Empathy and Compassion: We will put ourselves in each other’s shoes.
- Values: We will adhere to common values.
- Competence: We will continuously develop our skills.
- Responsibility: We will be accountable for our actions.
- Result: We will work focused and purposefully.
- Continuous Trust Development: We will continuously improve our teamwork.
Application of Trust Canvas and “Trust Manifesto”
- Priority Setting: First, determine which of the eight areas are most important to your team. These priorities should align with the commitments in the “Trust Manifesto.”
- Action Planning: The next step is to develop a specific action plan for each priority area. This should be a transition from words to deeds, from ideas embedded in the “Manifesto” to real actions.
- Monitoring and Measurement: Use established metrics to measure the effectiveness of your plan and its compliance with the commitments of the Manifesto.
- Continuity and Improvement: Based on the collected data, make iterations and necessary adjustments. This will not only improve current processes but also allow you to review and refine your “Trust Manifesto.”
The combination of the Team Trust Canvas and the “Trust Manifesto” provides not only a theoretical foundation for the development of trust but also a practical plan that ensures these ideas are turned into concrete actions. As a result, trust within the team becomes not just a declarative principle but a foundation for effective interaction and achieving results.
