Building Trust: The Cornerstone of Effective Teams at Bryan Management Services

  • Posted on Mar 6, 2024

Building competent teams at Bryan Management Services extends beyond acquiring technical skills. 

Their philosophy, embodied in their signature program, “Training with Purpose,” emphasizes the importance of trust as a foundation for high-performing teams. 

The BMS program strategists recognize that when trust thrives, communication flows more freely, collaboration becomes effortless, and success becomes a collective pursuit.

Why Trust Matters

Imagine a team environment where colleagues hesitate to share ideas, fearing judgment. Where feedback shows up as criticism and collaboration feels like a chore, the lack of trust creates friction, stifles innovation, and ultimately hinders a team’s ability to achieve its goals.

Bryan Management Services understands this. We believe that a strong foundation of trust is the cornerstone of any successful team. 

Trust fosters open communication, where team members feel comfortable sharing ideas, vulnerabilities, and constructive criticism. It allows for collaboration, where team members know they can rely on each other and celebrate collective achievements. 

In short, trust is the glue that binds a team together, enabling them to overcome challenges and achieve remarkable results.

Reaffirming and Restoring: Training with Purpose in Action

Bryan Management Services’ “Training with Purpose” program doesn’t shy away from the messy reality of team dynamics. Trust can be fragile and requires constant reaffirmation, especially after conflict or misunderstandings. Our program utilizes two powerful tools to address these issues:

  • DiSC Assessments: This assessment helps individuals understand their communication preferences and behavioral styles. By identifying personal DiSC styles and those of their colleagues, team members can learn to adapt their communication approach to foster better understanding and collaboration. Imagine a team where an “assertive” communicator recognizes the value of the “analytical” colleague’s need for data and vice versa. This appreciation for differences paves the way for a more inclusive and productive environment.
  • Energy Leadership Index (ELI): The ELI explores the concept of “energy” in the workplace. This assessment helps individuals understand their leadership style and how their energy level impacts others. Learning how different energy levels affect communication and collaboration allows team members to adjust their approach to create a more positive and productive team environment. For example, adjusting and elevating your energy level can change your level of engagement when working with others.

Beyond Assessments: Building Trust Every Day

While DiSC and ELI provide valuable insights, Bryan Management Services acknowledges that trust doesn’t solely depend on assessments. They encourage ongoing practices that reaffirm and build trust within teams:

  • Active Listening: Encouraging team members to listen to each other without interrupting or judging promotes a sense of value and respect.
  • Open Communication: Fostering an environment where honest and transparent communication is encouraged strengthens team dynamics.
  • Appreciation and Recognition: Acknowledging individual and team achievements promotes a sense of camaraderie and shared success.

By implementing these practices, Bryan Management Services helps trainees understand the importance of trust and equips them with the tools to build a foundation of trust within their teams.

The Ripple Effect of Trust

The benefits of trust extend far beyond individual teams. A company with a culture built on trust fosters a more positive and collaborative work environment. Employees feel valued and empowered, leading to increased engagement and productivity. 

Ultimately, Bryan Management Services recognizes that by equipping their trainees with trust-building tools, they are not only building competent teams but also laying the groundwork for organizational success.
