With this project, we set out to investigate how trusting relationships develop in the workplace, and the consequences of losing trust. We began by exploring relevant literature and undertaking in-depth case studies, and in our original proposal we suggested experimenting with form and length of narrative material. It soon became clear that one page of text would be about the right amount to stimulate thinking among busy managers and OD/HR practitioners. So, following discussion with Roffey Park’s head of research, Dan Lucy, in June 2015, we agreed to produce a series of short readings that could act as ‘prompts’ for discussion and learning: (i) mini-stories about trust, drawn from our case studies, and (ii) short pieces reflecting on relevant literature, which originated as blog posts (see by either Rob or Alison.
