This breakfast session examines the relationship between trust, credibility and respect and provides principles and tools for restoring broken trust and building a trust-driven work environment. Some statistics say that a staggering 40 percent of employees don’t trust management—and without trust, employees feel a sense of uncertainty, insecurity and worry that creates a barrier to effective performance.
With our current business reality and global economy revolving around relationships and partnerships, the ability to establish, cultivate, and restore trust with our colleagues, employees, vendors and customers is an essential leadership capability.
At the completion of this module, participants will be able to:
- Understand the relationship between trust, credibility, and respect
- Minimize trust-busters and restore broken trust
- Apply principles to cultivate a trust-based work environment
