If you meant that a lack of trust exists in the workplace then yes, I absolutely agree. I wouldn’t say it’s naive to trust though because, again, try getting anything done without it — military, corporate, or life in general.
I’ve never heard of trust being associated with naïveté. In fact, for anybody who doesn’t think trust is important, I would challenge them to try to get anything done without it.
Great stuff, Lauren. I’ve written about meetings before and won’t bore you with the details. There is definitely an art and science to having productive and worthwhile meetings — something people easily take for granted. It’s easy to think, “Oh, I just show up to the meeting and we get work done.” No. It doesn’t work that way, as your article highlights. Great article!
