Duration: 1 hour
Trust – it’s an essential part of effective leadership and it’s no exaggeration to say that trust in a leader can shape an organization’s morale, retention of employees, ability to innovate and more. And it’s a two-way street – leaders have to be willing to trust those they lead.
This session helps leaders develop a common language and understanding around issues of trust in the organizational environment. It’s important for leaders to understand the complex factors that can cause a lack of trust to develop before they initiate discussions on trust itself. Clarity around actions and behaviors that cause a lack of trust help leaders craft sustainable solutions to resolve any existing issues and begin to build a culture of trust throughout the organization.
In this session you will:
- Learn the different ways trust issues arise in the workplace.
- Evaluate your own underlying willingness to trust and explore how that might help or hinder your relationships.
- Learn how to address the root causes of trust concerns.
- Learn to enhance your leadership capability in raising, discussing and advancing trust with your colleagues or teams.
Target audience: Talent managers, HR business partners or coaches who are responsible for training and developmental initiatives, entry- or first-levels of management; high-potential employees who are soon to be promoted into a leadership role for the first time; team leaders, functional leaders at all levels and senior leaders.
