More efficient and effective in the business context than team building exercises, the Team Trust Indicator (TTI) enables teams to work together more effectively. It enables teams to measure and manage levels of trust within the team, as it goes through different stages of team development. Using the TTI, the team can identify trust building behaviours that are particularly needed and relevant in their team. Why does this matter?
Well, research suggests that building higher levels of trust is the most cost effective way to boost team performance within an organisation. For example, recent research by Google found that the most important factor contributing to a team’s effectiveness was TRUST. Those organisations which focus on fostering trust within their teams, have stronger employee engagement, deal with conflicts more constructively, prioritise innovation and are better at profit growth and achieving results.
It is an online questionnaire, feedback report and facilitated team process that enables a team or work group to identify and manage dynamics within the team that are restricting and blocking high performance and productivity. It measures levels of trust within the team against 9 important trust criteria – the criteria that people use to decide whether to trust or not. The aim is to provide a structured approach to identifying and managing the trust gaps between what team members feel they need from each other and what they sense they are actually receiving. The tool then gives the team a step-by-step process for exploring and resolving these trust deficits.
The TTI is designed for all teams that have worked together for at least a short time and is also well suited to remote or virtual teams where the level of control over the results of people’s actions is limited because of geographical distance or time zones. It is particularly suited to multicultural and virtual teams where there is a greater potential for reserve and mistrust.
The Team Trust Inicator is an excellent diagnostic with which to introduce a team coaching session or workshops as it offers a strong insight into how well a team is working together. It is particularly valuable for an organisation going through a period of change, where trust needs to be maintained or re-built.

WorldWork is developing a multi-rater leadership tool called the Trusted Leadership Indicator (TLI) that will be available in the autumn of 2018.
“The most valuable feature of the Team Trust Indicator is its capacity to put figures on team trust and to quantify some qualitative human perceptions. The outcomes are meaningful, easy to understand and form the thread of how the team works.”
