Trusting your team

by Magnus Nilsson
An important part of getting a team to perform well together is to create a sense of psychological safety. If you trust your team members it will be easier to give and receive complex feedback that could help you increase the quality of the team's output. Part of psychological safety is trust, and one way to increase trust is to show vulnerability and share intimate information about yourself. In this exercise I will split you up into groups, give you a set of personal questions for you to answer, and we will see what happens when you get personal with strangers. Is it possible to create trust in 45 minutes between a group of people who never met before? We'll be using questions from the School of Life's 100 questions. * Intro & group split (5 mins) * Each group answers and discusses a set of questions (30-45 mins) * Learnings (10 mins)
