Trust me

Trust is the foundation of efficient and effective relationships. Organizations are the sum of many of individual relationships, so the role of trust becomes exponential.

In a lot of working environments you'll find people spending a lot of their time explaining why and how they did something. Sometimes this is to decimate information, but often it's to verify someone's work is up to snuff - that it's trustworthy.

You'll find critical efficiency in a group when you can look at someone else and say, "you don't need to justify how you've done your work to me," which is to say, "I trust you."

Maybe when we hire folks and build teams, we don't correctly evaluate this critical component. It won't be revealed through a coding challenge or by looking at someone's  credentials, but it's worth finding those people you'll really trust.
