why focus on leadership trust?

If you're a leader responsible for organizational change initiatives, you know that a lack of trust can quickly lead to tremendous resistance to change, ineffective communication, and strategic failures. Despite the importance of trust in leadership, research shows that most people do not have trust in leadership. Therefore, the leaders who are able to quickly and effectively establish trust not only have a competitive advantage but also improve the experience of their team members. 

At the height of the pandemic, trust in leadership was at an all-time high and it has since declined. What can this teach us about how trust works in organizations? This half-day retreat will share the latest research and contextualize it in a way that makes it practical and actionable.
