The deep work in teams is trust.
Trust is complex. When trust is perceived as a condition dependent feeling, it can feel non-actionable. Trust matters because teams move at the speed of trust. If you want to accelerate anything about a team, you have to grow trust within the team.
We now know how to do this.
We teach teams to work by trust building agreements rather than by tension building assumptions. We teach them to share stories of struggle and progress that grow their sense of mutual connection and belonging. We teach them how to use social technologies to become more inclusive and transparent together. All of these build trust. This is the deep work of teams.
