Leadership Excellence Essentials;Oct2008, Vol. 25 Issue 10, p11
The author compares and contrasts high-trust organization (HTO) with low-trust organization (LTO). He cites that HTOs dealt with problems easily and efficiently unlike LTOs, in which problems become obstacles. He notes that HTOs rely on solid and believable communication while LTOs depend on controlling damage and minimizing unrest. He also emphasizes the focus of HTOs on development, positive reinforcement and positive culture.
