Webinar description:

Each year, the Edelman organization publishes its acclaimed Trust Barometer – an annual survey of the opinions of global leaders. This year's results are in, and what they reveal about the nature of trust is surprising: Today, trust and transparency are as important to corporate reputation as the quality of products and services. In fact, in the U.S. and in much of Western Europe, these two attributes rank higher than product quality—and far out­rank financial returns.

It's no surprise. The worst recession in three generations has wreaked havoc on our markets and the companies that operate within them. And our employees are living with fear and uncertainty about the economy, their jobs and their careers.

More than ever, there is urgency around building and restoring trust – between departments, within teams, across suppliers, with customers, and in the marketplace.

Now the organization looks to you. How are you, as a learning professional, going to help your leaders to rebuild trust in your organization, trust in its leadership, and trust among peers?

At Blueline Simulations, we have some thoughts about that. We are equipping the most influential organizations with new tools for restoring, building, and extending trust with all stakeholders.

In this 60 minute webinar you will:
  1. Learn how one of the world's leading professional services firms is reengaging
    its workforce by building a culture of Trust.
  2. Discover the tools available to support your reengagement efforts.
  3. Experience action learning design elements from each of the tools.
Organizations don't build trust, people do -- one conversation and one behavior at a time.

Differentiate yourself and your company through The Speed of Trust® Simulation and the Speed of Trust Meeting in a Box™ tools from Blueline Simulations.

Who should attend this webinar:

This webinar is for anyone – including managers at all levels – who wish to lead their organizations in an effort to extend, build, and restore trust.
