C-9:  Strategies to Develop a Company Culture that Fosters more Safety and Trust, Catapulting the Success of your Team to New Heights

Jacquelyn Rinaldi, Ph.D.

Presentation Summary:  The most effective and cohesive leaders create and maintain trust within their teams. Trust makes teamwork possible. Building trust doesn’t happen in a week; it happens over time as employees see consistent, predictable leadership that promotes safety, clarity, and creativity. How do we become more aware of our trust factor? Would our team be more successful if we developed a more trustworthy company culture?

Leaders who are clear, vulnerable, and provide a safe environment, develop trust. When we see through our own distorted filters or when we shine a light inside our own thinking processes and beliefs, we see more clearly the limiting thinking patterns that may to be restraining our ability to lead our teams to their full potential. In this workshop we will learn tools to help build a more trusting company culture by becoming more transparent and self-aware as leaders, guiding our staff to do the same—giving all of us tools to show up as our best selves in work and in life.
