A high level of trust creates an environment where people can openly realize their individual goals while working on shared goals as an organization, team, department or business unit. Disengaged people basically say: I do not care.
Leaders need to turn this lack of enthusiasm around and make their people see what is in it for them. Because once the culture of the organization is affected largely by “I do not care” there is not much going to happen anymore. There is no room for creativity, innovation or passion because there is no input.
