Environments of Trust 2

Last time, I wrote about my feelings and experiences regarding observations of group activities and their indications of trust.

I have found that activities I mentioned as either characteristics of low-trust or high-trust environments tend to lead to more activity in the same column. Essentially, among otherwise healthy individuals, trust breeds trust and the lack of trust breeds a continuation or acceleration of the lack of trust. 

So environments in which bragging is a common practice also tend to also favor blaming.  Conversely, environments that celebrate success also tend to be much more collaborative when it comes to fixing problems. 

Next time...breaking patterns....
