Trust: The Coin of the Realm

How to build trust in the workplace to support employee performance, health, and happiness

Designed for keynotes, conferences, and events geared toward leadership teams and employees

Recent research found that high-trust companies have happier and healthier employees, higher productivity and profitability, more collaboration, better quality of work, and higher retention. People at high-trust companies also experience fewer problems with chronic stress and report being happier with their lives. These are all factors that lead to higher engagement and performance.

In a business environment, trust is the coin of the realm. Yet a global CEO survey done by PwC recently revealed that half of CEOs believe lack of trust in their organization is an existential threat. Clearly, many leaders recognize the problem, but they don’t know what to do about it. If your audience can relate, this workshop offers a solution: a proven strategy and method for how to build trust in your workplace. 

Key takeaways

By the end of this workshop, your audience will leave with an action plan containing strategic and tactical steps they can take to develop a culture of trust.
