8 Questions That Indicate Whether You Have Trust

You obviously cannot assume everyone trusts you equally. A great way to find out is to survey your people. I am a big fan of Pat Lencioni’s Five Dysfunctions of a Team Survey, which has questions to evaluate how much team members trust each other.

Here is a sample question from that survey to help you determine whether you team members trust you. For each of these statements, how would rate your relationship with an individual team member and their relationship to you (the rating system is (1 = never, 2 = rarely, 3 = sometimes, 4 = usually, 5 = always):

  1. Team members admit their mistakes.
  2. Team members acknowledge their weaknesses to one another.
  3. Team members ask for help without hesitation.
  4. Team members willingly apologize to one another.
  5. Team members ask one another for input regarding their areas of responsibility.
  6. Team members are unguarded and genuine with one another.
  7. Team members can comfortably discuss their personal lives with you.
  8. Team members acknowledge and tap into one another’s skills and expertise.
