Bosses Can Fix Broken Trust and Development Dimensions International survey finds that untrustworthy bosses can use honesty and recognition to improve relationships with employees.

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 10, 2006 -- Based on a recent survey sponsored by Development Dimensions International (, employees who don't trust their bosses report that bosses can improve relationships by not over promising and by recognizing achievements.

"Bosses who want to build an environment of trust will have to enlist in some repair work,” said Rich Wellins, Senior Vice President, DDI. " But none of these are extraordinary requests. Being honest about their authority and recognizing good work are sound practices for all bosses—not just those who are trying to make amends."

Specifically, when asked what a boss they didn't trust could do to improve their relationship, of the 731 people who completed the survey: 36% said being honest about what they can and cannot do; 34% said recognizing my achievements to both peers and higher-ups; 16% said giving me authority on challenging assignments; and 10% said asking me for ideas and input.
