Leaders who build trust have always held societies and organizations together. But today, an added dynamic makes trustworthy leadership even more essential.
The pace of both change and competition are now so fierce that long-term, superlative performance is absolutely vital. And sustained peak performance is possible only in setting where trust runs deep.
This training delves into the principles which define Trust-Centered Leadership®. It underscores the competitive advantage of being an organization in which trust prevails among workers, between workers and management, and with vendors and customers.
The insights and principles in this training are derived from the firsthand experience of Dr. Mike Armour, the presenter and SLDI's managing principal. He developed the framework of Trust-Centered Leadership® while turning around a near-bankrupt college and drawing on trust-building to hold the campus together during the protracted turn-around.
The content and materials for Mastering Trust-Centered Leadership® are adapted from our proprietary LeaderTrack® Professional Development Series for Managers and Leaders and is based on Dr. Armour's book Leadership and the Power of Trust: Building a High-Trust, Peak-Performance Organization.
