"Upgrading Trust to Energize Collaboration"Description of Program:

We’ve all experienced it: behavior that breaks trust. It stops us cold or burns us up. It feeds cynicism and defensiveness. Moving forward, an openness and creative willingness are lost. Collaboration suffers.

We know trust breakdowns in business and workplace settings are costly. Even with an espoused commitment to strengthening trust in leadership and professional relationships, we can be blind to the trust factor in persistent difficulties or “breakdowns.”

What can be better than this?

We all want to work with leaders and teams with high, resilient levels of trust. As coaches, trust dynamics are at play for all of our core competencies: setting the foundation, co-creating the relationship, communicating effectively, and facilitating learning and results. The trouble is that, when challenged, cultivating trust can quickly take a back seat to other priorities. Then before you know it, relationships have soured and the environment is somehow toxic and people don’t know what to do to make it better.

Well-intentioned, capable people can get very cynical about “flavor of the month” and patterns that resist change, no matter what “how to-s” you present. What can we do to restore trust, even in the face of enduring difficulty or difference? What does it mean for you to embody trust?

Join us to explore elements essential for upgrading and embodying trust. Together we’ll explore options for helping yourself and others “move the needle” where you now hit your limit. Join us as we get to the heart of being more of the change we wish to see in the world.
