Spiritual Wellness: The Key to Trust and High Performance at Work

Are Employees Who Are Spiritually Well More Trustworthy and Trusting, Does This Impact Their Mental Health?

An Erosion of Spiritual Wellness Has Impacted The Workplace and Maybe A Factor In The Mental Health Epidemic Affecting Millions of Professionals at Work.

Low trust at work erodes employees’ confidence, promotes fear, and increases stress and anxiety. Trust among colleagues, among team members, leadership, and trust that their organization will do right by them are some key factors employees express as core to trust issues at work.

As more employees are impacted by the troubling issue of the global pandemic, mental health at work is becoming a concern for small and large employers alike. I have been looking at the connection between trust and well-being and the data shows that trust is essential for employees to feel psychologically safe at work.

Trust at work is essential for high performance. If you want employees to perform at a high level, they must first trust and feel safe at work. I believe that there is a direct correlation between trust and high performance.

Trust at work is essential for high performance

No one should lose their job or be laid off while the executives in their corporation take home huge bonuses. How did we get here you may ask, when did we become so callous that we would rather take a raise than ensure our employees had a job to put food on their table even when our raise is more than five years their annual salary? Is this moral dilemma part of a broader spiritual erosion? Spiritual erosion is not something that happens to those who are religious.

Erosion is the wearing away or diminishing of something or a relationship. It happens slowly and sometimes quietly without notice. It is sometime overlooked until after the erosion is completed. What is left is an empty space or discoloration that reminds us of what was lost.

The slow erosion of spiritual wellness has left us with distrust, without meaning and purpose, out of alignment with core values, hopelessness, out of balance, with low faith in humanity and in the integrity of others. The key to building trust at work is through developing integrity as a competency. Something that everyone aspires to improve.

The challenge here is that integrity is a by-product of spiritual wellness. Spiritual wellness encompasses all those invisible aspects of our lives, such as: self-esteem, faith, purpose, balance, personal style, and core values. For too long we have ignored this part of our humanity and now we lack the resilience to deal with the tougher issues of a changing world and with fluctuating environmental issues that are all encompassing.

While the spiritual self is invisible, it is the most powerful. It is also the fuel for trust-building. Showing up to work with a spiritual wellness deficit makes you less reliable, accountable, and less likely to trustworthy.
