How to Create a Culture of Trust in Your Organization

Societal, institutional and organizational trust is at an all-time low. The 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer survey of more than 33,000 people in 28 countries reveals a significant decline in trust in institutions and found that most respondents believed that both government and business leaders purposefully mislead people on a regular basis.  This lack of trust is bad news for managers. In his research on the neuroscience of trust, Paul J Zak found that employees in high trust organizations are 50% more productive, report 74% less stress and 106% more energy at work than their low trust counterparts. They also report more engagement, less burnout, and take fewer sick days. Join host Jenn DeWall as she explains how to establish trust as a leader, rebuild trust once it is damaged, and create a culture of trust from the front line workers to the C-Suite.

Leadership mindset

The Leadership Mindset: Cultivating a Growth Mindset for Success

A leader’s mindset will greatly affect how they face a crisis, manage change and create strategy for the future. A person’s mindset influences how they view themselves and the world around them and can create self-imposed limitations. Mindset can mean the difference between success and failure. What one leader sees as a threat, another may see as an opportunity for learning. Everyone views the world through the filter of their own minds, and it is important to be aware of how mindset impacts behavior, choices, and outcomes. Likewise, it is important to know that mindsets can change and be cultivated and developed with intention and practice.

"The Crestcom Bulletproof Manager course provided by Dave Lawrence is a resource of immense value for both newer leaders as well as seasoned managers. The course is structured in a way to put the often demanding task of leading people into a framework which enables people leaders to thrive under evolving requests and demands, as well as sharpens the tools already in the belt of those with strong leadership experience. Between Dave's uncanny ability to cogently steer the course where it will make the greatest impact and the depth of topics discussed, such as demographic shifts and their impact on being an effective leader, listening and dialogue techniques, and a focus on not just professional development but also personal wellness, I cannot recommend this course enough to any organization that wants to take its productivity to new heights. There is somewhat of a linear path to the course that really ties all of the elements together upon completion and left me feeling more confident and capable to tackle the ever shifting demands, not just within my company, but also with external stakeholders as well. You will not be disappointed!"

"I enrolled all the upper management of my firm, including myself in the Crestcom program. While the price appears steep on the onset, it was well worth the time and effort. One reason is that it gave prospective executives tools that would otherwise require lengthy and costly mentoring. The other thing is that in almost every session, there was that one golden nugget that I took back and applied immediately. The sessions allowed me not only the time to think about new ways to improve, but actually focused me on what and how to do it. Dave Lawrence is a superstar!"
