Trust is one of the most critical elements in leading teams and building successful business relationships, but it takes time to develop and is easy to lose. What are the key elements of trust? And what are the seemingly small behaviors that can erode trust – in your team, in your organization, and in yourself? If trust is in a state of disrepair, what are some strategies you can use to rebuild it? And finally, what can you do actively create a trust-based team and organization? By attending this session, participants will be better able to:

  • Learn new distinctions on understanding the elements of trust
  • Use practical strategies for how trust can be built (or rebuilt) 
  • Create a more productive and satisfying personal and professional life
