Trust Is Adding Value To Your Daily Work

About Trust & Adding Value to your Daily Work

Size matters and size comes in different flavors like for example value, cost and time. All dimensions correlate somehow into results depending on the metric you’d like measure. Stop! Do you even measure one of those dimensions on a regular base? Do you make them transparent? For whom? Colleagues, your boss, your team, your organization or even to your costomers?

You are probably aware of the statement “undercomittment and overdeliver”. I doubt this is a good result. It is generally more seldom, because of overestimations of one’s own capabilities, extrinsic given requests which are not able to be fulfilled. Both ways aren’t good, because they miss reliability. But reliability only works if they come buttom up from the team doing the work, not top down. You will find similiarities in management misconceptions like “to deliver more with less”. All manipulations and lack in transparency won’t lead to trust. It’s even worse, it cost performance and real value for customers and employees.
