A team without trust is a team without function.

If managers don’t trust their employees, they’ll spend too much time looking over shoulders and breathing down necks, rather than empowering employees to succeed. If employees don’t trust their managers, they’ll be less inclined to follow directions or stay motivated through tough times.

This is a recipe for a toxic workplace and declining business performance.
