Transformational Trust Model
Art work by Anthony Task, 2017
The triquetra also known as the celtic knot is used to symbolize how a leader can build a circle of trust. It is a dynamic process that evolves and flows. There is no beginning and ending. Trust envelops all areas.Trust is the foundation for teamwork, collaboration, learning cultures, and a healthy organization.
The three key components in building a circle of trust are self-awareness, communication, and energy. In order to create the right environment to foster trust a leader would need to “show trust to build trust; say we, ask questions, listen, and take advice; and get people interacting” (Kouzes & Posner, 2007, p. 247). Transformational leaders are authentic, self-aware, have a clear vision, and are passionate, which motivates others.
