The antidote to a crisis in leadership: Trust.

February 15th, 2013

TRUST blocks falling

I have a suggestion for you. Sign up for a free webinar offered Tuesday, Feb. 21st with business partners and Smart Trust co-authors Stephen M. R. Covey and Greg Link. Here’s why.

On the eve of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Edelman launched its thirteenth Trust Barometer, a global study that explored levels of trust across 26 markets and diverse industry sectors. Among its findings: Only 15% of people in the U.S. believe business leaders will tell the truth with confronted with a difficult issue.

Trust is the ultimate leadership skill and the igniter of that fireball of energy, focus and commitment that’s critical to the success of any organization: employee engagement.

According to Covey and Link, low trust causes toxic teams, and toxic teams kill employee engagement. Their own data, published in Smart Trust, show that a 10% increase in trust has the same impact on employees as a 36% increase pay.

Join the conversation on the 21st. And feel free to submit your own questions for discussion. A little trust can change everything.
