Adopted from the following great insight shared by Simon Sinek from his book The Infinite Game
Whereas performance relates to IQ(Intelligence Quotient) , trust relates to EQ(Emotional Quotient)
Performance is given more value by finite minded leaders who put numbers ahead of people.
Trust is given more value by infinite minded leaders who are willing to take the risks to form trusting teams.
In the modern day workplace there is an increasing emphasis being given to trust since performance can be taught whereas trust is more human in nature.
