Part of what I do as a Content Marketing specialist is write articles for executive coaches and consultants (www.ContentforCoachesandConsultants.com). These can be up to 4,000 words in length and customized for a person, as in a recent white paper I did for a client.
Or, I also write non-exclusive content that can be used in newsletters and blogs about leadership development and issues of concern in organizations. I've just finished an article about transparency and trust, and it's available for purchase and use in company newsletters.
An issue all organizations are facing now days is that of trust and transparency. A January 2009 Harvard Business Review survey revealed that, over the last year, readers reported having 76% less trust in U.S. companies’ senior management and 51% less trust in non-U.S. companies. (Of the 1,000+ respondents, 60% were based outside the United States.) That’s a significant drop in confidence levels.
Roughly half of all managers don’t trust their leaders. Exact figures and study results vary, but no data compiled over the last 7 years have shown more than 50% trust for company leaders.
Without trust and transparency inside a company, you won't get customers to trust and buy products.
What can you do to improve the quality of trust and transparency in your organization? There are seven steps you can take towards a culture of transparency and trust.
