Thank you for completing the Trust Calculator Quiz! Expand to see your feedback:
Confidence
You are a micro-manager and have serious control issues. You appear to have a problem letting go of your control.

If you micro-manage less and allow your team to do more you can free up time and harness their expertise more.It is not as sign of weakness to let go of some control and let the team pursue the team objectives using their own expertise.

Learn to trust you team and their abilities more and you will be presently surprised what you can achieve together.

Things don’t look all that bad! You seem to be on the right track, but you still are clinging to too much control.

Your leadership style is not empowering and inclusive enough yet.Learn to let go the reins some more and trust in the abilities of your team more. If you practice the art of delegating more,  you will soon find your team responding more to you and accepting your role as leader more.

By delegating you will not only empower your individual team members, but you also have more time for yourself and less stress.

Remember, your way is not always the only way.

You are leading your team in a way that allows them to grow and gain experience. Your team is most likely having fun at what they do and you are probably achieving your targets regularly without little or no effort from you as the leader.

Your team will be optimally empowered and they will ensure full production because of the meaningful relationships you have develop with them. You should be having lots of time for yourself to focus on the way forward for your team or business.

Keep inspiring your team and strengthen those relationships so that you are in a position as a unit to face any issues that come your way

Trust
You appear to have no meaningful trust relationship with your team. You most likely communicate very little with your team and when you do it is not heartfelt communication that shows you care about them.

If you communicate more and get to know your team in a more personal level, they will respond by opening up to you more. They will support you even when the going is tough.

You most likely also do not allow them to make mistakes once in a while, so their fear of failure has them hiding things form you.

Your relationship with your team needs some work, but you are moving in the right direction. You need to work on the communication and show genuine interest in your team in order to strengthen those relationships.

Your relationships will grow stronger if you allow them to make some mistakes every so often and support them to grow from the experience and not judge them.

By showing more interest in them as people they will respond by letting you into their world which will create trust and empathy.

You appear to have a meaningful relationship with your team and they trust you enough to accept your leadership.

They are responding well as you are empathetic and obviously concerned about their empowerment.The more you show genuine interest in them the more they will trust you and open up to you even sharing personal issues with you because they know you will keep it to yourself.

Continue looking out for the teams interest more than yours and your relationship will stay solid.

Engagement
Your team members do not accept your leadership and are doing their own thing. They have their own agenda and it might be different to the organization’s goals.

Your team are most likely not even communicating with you and are surely facing, or even creating conflict in the team.

If you learn to open up and communicate with your team, they will respond to you in a positive way and not challenge your authority.

Your team’s trust levels are low and they are not fully behind you as the leader. They are not engaged enough and not producing the results you would expect of them. 

Your team is probably moody and not getting along with each other either. They are most likely hiding mistakes from you, covering up things that negatively impact the team, or even not completing their tasks as they should.

You need to continue with heartfelt and sincere communication to gain their trust more and have fully an engaged team that wants to see you succeed as a leader.

You have a fully engaged team and your relationship is based on trust. Your team is in a position where they self-regulate and don’t need you to watch over them. 

They are inspired and do their part simply because they want to and they like pleasing you, and they do not even expect any reward in return.

Keep on putting their well-being ahead of yours and you will have a team that will follow you anywhere
