At LIW, we understand the importance trust plays in developing strong relationships. Building a culture of trust and psychological safety is critical for business leaders to get the most out of their teams, and to ultimately be successful. Various research from the 1970s to today backs this up. It’s why our leadership programmes centre around promoting an open and honest culture, where all ideas can be shared and where failures are seen as an opportunity to learn and develop.

In this piece we look at the science and research which demonstrate the impact of trust and psychological safety in relationships, and why they play such a critical role in effective leadership.
