Building and maintaining relationships requires a strong foundation of trust. Some of us automatically trust people until proven otherwise, while others are more cautious until they completely trust an individual. In either case, trust must be carefully built and nurtured. It is at the core of how all of us live, work together, listen to one another, and interact on an ongoing basis. Building and rebuilding trust is the deep and meaningful work of a lifetime.
What builds trust in a relationship, an organization or group? What diminishes trust? When helping others resolve conflicts, what can mediators and others do to help clients or colleagues build or rebuild trust?
In this engaging and interactive workshop, you will explore these questions, learn about the trust and attributes of trust, and explore how to increase trustworthiness strengths in yourself or your organization. We’ll identify strategies you can apply when mediating or helping others in conflict. If you want to increase trust in your own relationships, apply trust-building strategies during conflict resolution, or promote a more trusting culture in your organization, this workshop will provide the understanding and skills to become a lifelong catalyst for the development of trust.
