Summary: Franklin Covey's Leading at the Speed of Trust
Trust-related problems like redundancy, bureaucracy, fraud, and turnover put the skids on productivity, divert resources, squander opportunities, and chip away at a company's brand. On the other hand, leaders who make building trust in the workplace an explicit goal of their jobs elevate trust to a strategic advantage-accelerating growth, enhancing innovation, improving collaboration and execution, and increasing shareholder value.
Leading at the Speed of Trust is a highly interactive workshop that engages leaders at all levels in the real work of identifying and closing the trust gaps that exist in your organization. Instead of paying outrageous "Trust Taxes," your organization can begin to realize "Trust Dividends." Doing business at the "speed of trust" dramatically lowers costs, speeds up results, and increases profits and influence.
Franklin Covey's Leading at the Speed of Trust leadership-development program is designed to help leaders:
Choose to make building trust in the workplace an explicit goal of their work.
Understand the real, measurable Trust Taxes they might be paying without realizing it.
Change Trust Taxes to Trust Dividends, which are the benefits that come from growing trusting relationships.
Make action plans for Building Trust.
