CERN Ombuds on Rebuilding Trust

In her latest newsletter article for staff at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, Sudeshna Datta-Cockerill examines the breakdown and restoration of trust.  She observes that trust is built on reliability, integrity, expertise and good will. Of these bases, good will is the most critical for restoring trust. The Ombuds is an important resource for disputants to restore trust.


She writes:
Whatever the approach that is chosen, whether ‘tête à tête’ or through a facilitated conversation, an honest and open dialogue backed by the genuine wish to improve the situation is the way forward and constitutes a tried and tested way towards re-establishing the trust that is the cornerstone of all good working relationships.
