Building Trust in the Workplace
Getting at the Root of Low Trust Levels and its Impact on Organizational Success
Many organizations struggle with low levels of employee engagement and trust – with each other, with the company’s processes, and with leadership. Our Building Trust in the Workplace program will show you how to identify the reasons behind low trust levels, understand different types of behaviour in the workplace, and transform organizational culture to foster a more transparent and positive environment.
Our Building Trust in the Workplace program gets at the root of low trust levels and its impact on organizational success:
a) Identifying Your Company Culture
You’ll learn how to identify the different types of trust, the negative consequences of low trust, and how to measure trust levels across your organization. Through role-playing exercises, you’ll develop strategies for effective communications in a diverse employee environment, and practice managing difficult conversations for optimal results.
b) Fostering a Positive Culture
Use best practices and case studies to create your own custom strategy for improving your corporate culture. You’ll learn about self-managed teams and how to support positive behaviour and transparency, as well the vital role that communicating organizational vision, goals and expectations has in creating a trusting and motivating environment.
c) Making the Change
Honest communication is key to cultural change – but it must occur at all levels to be successful. You’ll learn how to help leadership teams acknowledge cultural issues and how to create effective communications strategies as a foundation for mutual trust and transparency.
