The DRIVERS® trust-scale© provides a simple approach to evaluating and assessing levels of trust from an individual to a specific team or the whole organisation. The research based, simple methodology provides unique insight for targeted change because it gives clarity about what is working well and why, and what is being adversely impacted. It strengthens self-awareness and awareness of others and, provides a framework and common language for any team to proactively deepen trust.
Assessment can be done in the moment, after an event, as a larger study or to inform the structuring and set up of a change programme, a specific project, communication approach or intervention seeking to boost engagement. The DRIVERS® trust-scale© provides invaluable knowledge and support to improve performance, motivation and advance human leadership.
Welcome to the DRIVERS® trust-scale©. This simple methodology uses visual assessment rather than numerical. Our visual processing has stronger communication lines through to our emotional brain and so the trust-scale© provides a deeper, more nuanced result. Full instructions on how to assess your own level of trust are just below.
Understanding and normalising how you felt through the lens of the DRIVERS® will help to regulate your emotions. If you see that some of the DRIVERS® are in the safe zone within the context you have chosen, that’s great. Why are they here? What are you doing and/or what is happening that is nurturing these, and how can you do more of it? And, for those that are sitting closer to the threat zone. What is happening? What are your options? What can you influence to shift them closer to safety?
The more often you measure the DRIVERS® using the trust-scale© the stronger your self-awareness will become and so will the clarity around the choices you have to affect change.
