About the Event

Trust is the belief that the words and actions of one’s leadership and coworkers will reliably align and that workplace processes will produce results that are in the best interest of the organization’s members, mission, and purpose.

Research conducted by Workplace Peace Institute found that the single most important factor of cultivating trust in the workplace is creating an environment in which all voices are heard. Additionally, employees need to personally experience equity — fairness and impartiality in all aspects of their work — and they need to witness the same equity among their coworkers across the organization.

In this live, online leadership training session, participants will learn about the  intricate feedback loop that exists within the human neurological system that is designed to build and maintain human-to-human connection. This feedback loop is foundational to how we build and sustain trust.

Join this live virtual learning session to explore the …

●  Connection between basic human needs and trust

●  Neuroscience of how trust is cultivated and sustains

●  Behaviors that build and maintain trust

Join this live, online leadership training session to increase your knowledge of the skills and competencies associated with high-trust leaders.
