The NAVY SEALS as well as any great work environment share this in common

With respect to performance and Trust , Trust is of much higher importance to Navy Seals and their training is oriented to encourage Trustworthy leaders rather than selfish minded high performing individuals.

Performance is related to technical competence and is more related to Intelligence Quotient which can be trained.On the other hand Trust relates to Character and more so related to Emotional Quotient which is needed to help collaborate with each other.

The same principles hold good in a highly trustworthy work environment where infinite minded visionary leaders focus on the macro aspects rather than micro aspects.Focus on macro aspects needs encouragement of Trustworthy individuals over High performing selfish minded individuals.

Concepts adopted from Simon Sinek’s book The Infinite Game
