Workplace managers and supervisors need knowledge and skills to lead collaborative and productive teams. An important area to develop knowledge and skills in is in the area of trust. Trust is an important concept that when established and maintained will lay a solid foundation for building a cohesive and effective team. Healthy communication skills and ways to improve employee engagement will be expanded on as it relates to increasing trust in the workplace.
Paul Lencioni in The Five Dysfunctions of a Team states that, “Trust lies at the heart of a functioning, cohesive team. Without it, teamwork is all but impossible.”
The observation and intervention steps for the employee distracted by chemical abuse will meet participating state requirements for an hour of drug and alcohol supervisor training in drug testing in their drugfree workplaces.
