Building Trust in a World of Wolves: Four Critical Strategies


Please note this is a joint meeting with TSHRM and will be held at the Doubletree in RTP from 11am - 1pm.


Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs learned a hard lesson: Big Bad Wolves usually mean big, bad trouble. Likewise, fables reveal that it’s dangerous to trust a wolf in sheep’s clothing or anyone who cries wolf.

Our turbulent, chaotic world is full of wolves. In every facet of society, there is an erosion of confidence. Distrust is insidiously creeping into all of our professional, commercial, community, and political affairs, eroding morale, loyalty, friendships, and productivity. With wolves at the door, trust becomes more valuable every day.

Do others trust you? The success of your company, career, relationships, and life depend on it. Fortunately there are ways to build trust in any setting you face.

In this engaging session, you will discover:

 Four critical strategies for building trust anywhere (plus the most powerful trust builder you can display when you walk into a room)

 How to detect the trust level of others

 How to build trust with even the most stubborn of listeners

 Key characteristics that trusted leaders share

 How to eliminate common, trust-destroying mistakes that even honest people make
