Session Overview

It's hard to do your best when you don't feel safe. Whether we are concerned with collaboration, strategic decision-making or the effective execution of projects, trust has the power to transform our work. For example, Stanford University showed that social cues signalling trust led to individuals persisting 64% longer on a challenging task and experiencing lower fatigue. Diving deeper, trust is the life-blood of effective collaboration. In fact, that’s precisely what Google found when they studied great teams. In this inspiration session the philosopher and trust expert Dr. Brennan Jacoby will unpack how trust works and share constructive techniques that can be used to cultivate psychological safety and built trust. Audience members will leave with: a shared language and understanding around trust, a self-assessment of their current state of collaboration and areas where they would like to move forward to. The session closes off with practical tools for building trust with clients and colleagues.
