A trust agreement forms the foundation for a positive working relationship, whether it’s between members of a group, or a manager and their team member(s). It should be created collaboratively, written down, and reviewed, and updated regularly as a living document.

How to Use it

Define what trust means to you and share that with your team. If you lead a team, host an interactive session on what trust means and have everyone share what trust means to them. 

  • Take turns providing answers to the following questions:
    • What does trust mean to me?
    • What do I need to have in order to feel trust?
    • What breaks trust?
  • Create and publish your team’s definition of trust.
