Final article in this edition

In proposing yet another way of understanding trust, John Tobin considers the work of the US pragmatist philosopher George Herbert Mead. Mead is concerned about what happens as we interact with each other in the hope that greater understanding can lead to improvement. Here, John takes Mead’s notion of ‘Cult Value’ and considers it in relation to trust. The more we speak of trust, the more it develops properties that become unachievable: it becomes a form of external ideal state. But as John points out, that is not all bad. It affects the nature and patterns of conversations whereby we talk and think about trust, and this can be inspirational and helpful. Yet at the same time, paradoxically, it can be draining and destructive.  John pays attention to trust as an organisation-wide ‘project’ of power that consists of different emergent person-to-person interactions as individuals and groups relate to each other.
