The importance of trust as a fundamental leadership element will be explained as well as techniques that healthcare IT leaders can use for repairing broken trust.
Trust is a foundational element for any healthy relationship in an organization. The impact of a lack of trust or the breaking of trust within a team or with one's customers could have devastating effects and produce negative feelings like blame, anger, or cynicism. Conversely, an environment of trust leads to empowerment, innovation, good will, and productivity.
