Use trust as the foundation for work relationships and understand the challenges that could compromise trust

Program Overview

The word “trust” is used throughout our society, both personally and professionally. Individuals trust others in different ways – personality, past experiences, job functions, and responsibilities tend to influence how we tend to trust. This program explores all of these factors.

Key Objectives

  • Characteristics of trust.
  • Qualities or attributes in a person that cause you to TRUST him or her?
  • Qualities or attributes in a person that cause you to DISTRUST him or her?

Key Concepts

There are four ways that professionals (and people in general) extend trust:

  • Trust no matter what

  • Trust but verify
  • Trust only if no other choice
