Overall, it's about credibility, walking the talk. - Anne Mulcahy
To enable delegates to develop their personal credibility as a foundation of trust and influence.
In many organisations decision-making is delegated as close to the front-line as possible; leaders at all levels are held accountable and often need to deliver results through collaboration with others. This training has been developed to explain how personal credibility (integrity, intent, capability and results) directly impacts someone's ability to influence and build trust with others.
Low trust creates hidden agendas, politics, interpersonal conflict, interdepartmental rivalries, win-lose thinking, defence and protective communication – all of which reduce the speed of trust. Low trust leads to overzealous policies and processes coupled with compliance and layers of governance in an attempt to manage the behaviour of a minority. Every individual can become an agent in establishing or restoring trust and in rebuilding relationships, and it can change a culture more quickly than you might expect.
Trust... is the key leadership competency of the new global economy. (Stephen M.R.Covey)
