When team members are genuinely transparent and honest with one another, it forms a safe environment that creates and builds vulnerability based trust.


Engage in Conflict Around Ideas
With trust, team members are able to engage in unfiltered, constructive debate of ideas.


Commit to Decisions
When team members are able to offer opinions and debate ideas, they feel heard and respected, and will be more likely to commit to decisions.


Hold One Another Accountable
Once everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.


Focus on Achieving Collective Results
The ultimate goal of building greater trust, healthy conflict, commitment, and accountability is one thing: the achievement of results.
