1. The Leadership Challenge

In the context of increasing market demands, deadlines, and unrelenting pressure to perform; it’s never been more important for leaders to keep sight of the fact that work gets done with and through people—and there’s nothing more impactful on people, their work, and their performance, than trust. So, how do you develop a culture where your people and teams have the ability to execute with incredible speed; where systems and structures are fully aligned to foster innovation, confidence, and loyalty; and where leaders and teams continually deliver results in an environment of constant change? The answer in a word: Trust. We will look at three factors critical to this challenge:

  •   Increasing speed
  •   Decreasing costs
  •   Leveraging your culture for “different-in-kind” performance

2. Leading at the Speed of Trust

Based on the world’s best-selling book on trust, the Leading at the Speed of Trust explores the research-validated framework, language, and process for creating a high-trust culture. Trust can be deliberately developed and leveraged in any organization, not only to achieve your most important, immediate goals, but also to become the foundation of an ongoing winning culture.
