Trust is declining in business. Over half of CEOs surveyed (55%) in PwC’s 2016 Annual Global CEO Survey believe there is a lack of trust in business. This is a dramatic increase in concern, from 37% in 2013. According to PwC trust is critical because employees become more committed to the company, partners are more willing to collaborate, and investors are more prepared to entrust stewardship of funding.
But what is trust, anyway?
Trust is a strong confidence or belief in someone or something. Employees and customers defect when they lack trust in leadership. Leaders fail to delegate and tend to overwork when they lack trust in their staff. How can leaders act to improve trust, alleviate loss and stress, and manage toward a more successful future?
Juli Geske-Peer will present the latest neuroscience research to build and maximize trust in your team, organization and beyond. Since fear and conflict can be the opposite of trust, she will also discuss what happens in the brain when someone is afraid or disputing. She will suggest strategies to halt conflict and increase trust, leading to greater personal and career success.
