September 12, 2017
Hosted by Jeff Smith
It is said that trust is a lot like oxygen. Everybody knows when its present and everybody seems to feel it when it’s not. It is also the main reason professional (and some personal) relationships fail. Trust is reciprocal like a two-way street. It is also like a seed planted that, over time, builds stable and predictable relationships. Conversely, Trust or lack of it, often shows up in increased “bad” turn-over statistics, low engagement survey scores and lots of gossip driven “noise” in the system. So how can Leaders help build up Trust on their Teams and in their organizations? What are the behaviors they can model that engender Trust? Please join us on the next Voltcast as Voltage CEO Jeff Smith and Principal Consultant Lee Hubert as they discuss Leadership Behaviors That Build Employee Trust across the organization.
