The Landscape of Trust Research: 4%

Last week I launched Phase 1 of the Landscape of Trust research project: this work will run throughout 2017, exploring the nature of trust between individuals, within teams, in organisations, and through technology. It will build out a range of diagnostic tools and practical interventions to help organisations develop high trust networks and hence become more Socially Dynamic.

Landscape of Trust at 4%

In Phase 1 we will build a substantial data set to create diagnostics and support the modelling of the Landscape: this will be done by gathering 1,000 narratives around Trust. These fall at the highest level, explaining ‘What Trust Means To Me’. It then down into subcategories, stories of how Trust is earned, fractured, where it is held, how it fails. So far, in the first few days, i’ve gathered an initial 42, so the job is just over 4% complete.

From these stories, we can use existing Trust measurement techniques, and create new ones, that we will test in Phase 2 later this year.

This is where i need your help: in Phase 1, i am gathering 1,000 open narratives, stories from people like you and me, but also recruiting 20 Research Partner organisations that can run an internal Cohort. Ideally, these will each be of over 100 people. So, if you can spare ten minutes, please take part in the research yourself, but if you think your organisation may be interested to be a Research Partner, get in touch!
