How can you build better relationship with your employees.

“I believe fundamental honesty is the keystone of business.”

– Harvey Firestone

Trust is defined as to have confidence, faith or hope in someone or something. An example of trust is having faith that things will be better in the future. Trust is an abstract mental attitude toward a proposition that someone is dependable. If an employee doubts their leader’s credibility, they may not be able to trust the leader as much.

How can trust be nurtured?

People tend to trust and like people who are similar to them. To be effective, leaders need their team’s trust. But how do you get that trust and how do you get it back if you’ve lost it?

Trust and Leadership

For this, three behaviors are essential. The first essential behavior is self awareness. A leader must know his own behavior patterns, his strengths and his weaknesses. Secondly, a leader must be aware of his employees’ behaviors and take it into consideration while making decisions. The last essential behavior is effective co-ordination and decision making skills. Employees seek these behaviors in a leader and are able to trust them more.

“Employees who trust leaders more are less likely to intend to quit, they tend to believe information from their leader more, and they seem to commit to company decisions more than if they don’t trust their leader as much.”

– Natasha Oulis.

How can PRISM help?

PRISM is a behavior profiling tool, curated in the UK, based on applied neuroscience. A professional PRISM Report, consists of a candidates strengths, weaknesses and their behavior preferences. A PRISM summary helps an individual understand the areas they can work on and be trained in to improve workplace performance.

The PRISM schema provides a highly simplified, graphical representation of how the brain’s functional architecture and four of its chemical systems: dopamine, serotonin, testosterone and estrogen, interact to create specific behavior groupings.

Hemisphere

These four hormones are represented with the help of colours in a PRISM Report as follows for better understanding:

  1. Dopamine – Gold
  2. Serotonin – Green
  3. Estrogen – Blue
  4. Testosterone – Red

PRISM does not subscribe to the once widely held belief that people are either ‘right-brained’ or ‘left-brained’. This was commonly referred to as ‘brain dominance’ – a theory now totally discounted by neuroscientists. PRISM takes in to accounts colours to explain behavior preferences and how they effect one’s work style and performance, based on applied neuroscience.

This is what a PRISM Brain Map looks like, the right hemisphere being the colours Green and Blue and the left hemisphere being the colours Gold and Red. Each Colour show different behavior preference driven by the above mentioned hormone.

  1. Gold is analytical.
  2. Green is expressive.
  3. Blue is stable.
  4. Red is drive.

A leader who is aware of his own behavior preferences would be more capable of understanding his employees and delivering results accordingly.

When a Leader knows himself and his employees, he is able to help employees cooperate, resolve conflicts between them, giving honest feedback, and check in with people about their concerns. A 360-degree feedback report can also help a team in understanding each other and work on improving together. All of this helps in building trust.
