Truth Serum vs. Trust Serum
One of my cornerstones that I base all of my programs is trust. The "T" word seems to be lacking in Corporate America today. Scientists may have discovered a link between a drug called Oxytocin and creating trust.
Oxytocin is generated mostly in the brain and plays a role in maternal behavior in mammals, such as nursing infants and in the overcoming of natural inhibitions against allowing others to approach.
In a "trust" game created in a laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland scientists found that inhaling Oxytocin made participants 17% more likely to trust someone else with their money.
The authors' results open up possibilities for investigating conditions in which trust is diminished or for extremely shy people. Maybe it is worth a try to develop trust between senior management and the company's employees!
