Develop and cultivate a culture of trust. Maintain a positive image of people. Give your employees the benefit of the doubt! Lead on the basis of result verification. However, if the trust is abused, replace it with tighter control until a breeding ground for trust has formed again. Lead fairly and predictably. Address abuse of trust concretely and personally. Do not look for culprits in your area, but take responsibility for the area you lead!
In addition to a culture of trust, also develop a distinct culture of appreciation.
