THE TRUST STYLE INVENTORY
A Powerful Coaching Solution
The Trust Style Inventory™ is a powerful coaching and training tool that provides insight
into how people trust. It is based on the principles of the IFB® Pillar of Trust and the Six
Seconds Know, Choose, Give Emotional Intelligence Model. The assessment offers a
very important feature that other trust psychometrics don’t: It is an emotionally
intelligent instrument designed to provide respondents with psychologically safe space
when exploring the results so real transformation can happen.
The Trust Style Inventory™ is a validated “A” Level psychometric that helps each
respondent understand their dominant trust “style” and the asset they can use to
strengthen it. It also provides insights into eight life areas that can be strengthened by
trust, ranking these factors so respondents can take deliberate steps to build trust.
So Why Use The Trust Style Inventory?
Use the Trust Style Inventory to open difficult conversations that can lead to trust building. Why bother? Distrust can be deeply embedded within organizational dynamics like disengagement, toxic cultures, impaired leadership, and plateauing performance. Here are a few reasons why trust-building is important:
62% of the variation in KPIs related to productivity, retention, customer focus & future success is predicted by trust.
53% of employees are disengaged and disengagement is costly. Disengaged workers
have 37% higher absenteeism, 49% more accidents, and 60% more errors.

Even if a team has been successful in the past, and even if the would follow their leader into a burning building, their trust in one another, or lack of it, is still likely to make a difference in the team’s performance.
