Getting Unstuck: Strategies to Repair Trust (1 Day)


Trust permeates relationships. When there is trust within groups, information flows and issues can be resolved easier. These are core ingredients in a thriving organization. However, when groups experience low trust or a violation of trust, it can be very disruptive to relationships and work systems. So how can groups work through it? This presentation highlights doctoral research on trust repair and provides strategies to strengthen relationships. Further, this session shares a new research-based model and provides tools that become an immediate take-away for all participants to apply at the group or organizational level.
