Trust Accelerators For Teams

Activating The Domino Effect That Accelerates Engagement, Innovation and High-Performance.

Keynote Presentation

One of the biggest challenges teams and organizations face in today’s business environment is a lack of trust in the workplace. In the majority of engagement survey results we’ve seen, “lack of trust” is almost always present as one of the areas needing attention and improvement.

“High trust organizations outperform low-trust organizations on total shareholder ROI by more than 280%.” –Towers Watson

Trust in Teams Is a Non-negotiable

A team that doesn’t trust each other is really just a group of individuals that work on tasks but never reach their full potential. They cannot bring forth exceptional results as a team. The bottom line: low-trust teams don‘t perform well or produce exceptional business outcomes. Why? Low-trust teams argue over roles and responsibilities. They don’t consistently cooperate or collaborate with each other. Rifts form. Confidence is overshadowed by doubt. The team environment weakens. Everything begins to take longer and becomes harder. Commitment, productivity, innovation and team engagement all suffer because trust is absent from the mix. Trust is the cornerstone of engagement.

Trust Makes Teams Work

Teams with high-trust connect, collaborate and allow team members to do their best work together. They support one another. They work smarter, faster and accomplish more. Business results are achieved through relationships. Authentic relationships are built on trust. Teams do their best work in a workplace that has a culture of trust built into it. Bottom line: Trust makes teams work because trust builds the bridge between the business need for results and the human need for connection.

Keynote Presentation: Trust Accelerators™

In this keynote talk, you will discover how trust is the foundation of effective relationships leading to exceptional business outcomes. We will unpack the core “accelerators” that catalyze a culture of trust that permeates into a team. Like a domino effect that sets off a chain reaction, “Trust Accelerators™” triggers a positive ripple effect within a team and organization. Building a culture of trust galvanizes a group into a high-performing, healthy team. Building trust is a formula for competitive advantage in today’s new economy. Dr. Christopher Meade will unpack these accelerators (trust behaviors) that are part of every great team and company.
