Focusing On The Foundation: Developing Interpersonal & Organizational Trust

We all know that trust is the foundation for any effective relationship and we have all experienced the negative consequences of a lack of trust. However, most of us are not intentionally facilitating the development of trust in others and may also not realize how the actions and decisions we make each day reduce our trustworthiness. Additionally, organizations are often not proactive in instilling trust and faith in employees, and as a result, assume that trust is the "default" until something terrible happens. The reality is that unless individuals and organizations are consistently demonstrating trust behaviors, trust will be reduced over time. This course will explore the variables that lead to trust development and destruction, how rank/power and culture affects trust, explain the most strategic ways to build/rebuild trust inside and outside the building, and detail how to assess your individual and organizational level of trust.
