Work-Anywhere and the Trust Issue

Operating with trust is the foundation of being a titleless leader. So the controversy erupting this week over the decision by Yahoo's CEO requiring everyone to work in the office raised, I think, big questions about trust.

When your organization or boss shifts to a more controlling style does that indicate a shift in trust? Do you need to be physically around those you work with be able to trust them or have them trust you? In this age of technology are work-anywhere approaches being challenged by the trust deficit that plagues many workplaces?

These questions and more are discussed in my recent article, "In the New Workplace: Trust Begets Trust." I'd love to hear your thoughts on Yahoo's decision and/or the topic of trust at work in general.
