Growing Your Influence Through Building Trust

Description: Everything we do both personally and professionally has a critical link to one simple, five-letter word—trust. Think about any situation you find yourself in with family, friends, a community group, or work. When there is a high level of trust from both parties, situations are very easily managed, enhanced, and enjoyable. But when the opposite is the case, there is little or no trust; it is more likely to be exhausting, unproductive, costly, and even antagonistic.

“You can’t have success without trust. The word ‘trust’ embodies almost everything you can strive for that will help you to succeed.” Jim Burke,
Former Chairman and CEO, Johnson and Johnson

An important way to ensure that we find ourselves in scenarios of the former example is to start with our own self-assessment of how we build and maintain trust. Join us for this interactive session, “Growing Your Influence Through Building Trust,” to learn some simple skills from FranklinCovey on how we can make an extremely positive impact in every dimension of life.
