FranklinCovey's: Inspiring Trust - Removed 8.25.16

For organizations whose competitive edge depends on speed to market and worker productivity, the hidden costs of low-trust work environments can rob them of their competitive advantage and credibility.

Inspiring Trust teaches those in leadership positions why building a high-trust work environment must be as essential as any other measurable economic goal of the organization. As a path to a new culture is forged, organizations will reap immediate as well as long-term high trust dividends in the form of: ? Increased speed to market ? Increased shareholder value ? Accelerated growth ? Enhanced innovation ? Better execution ? Heightened loyalty Lunch is included.

Best practices for cultivating an environment of increased team productivity and motivation, regardless of personality or role ? Tips to identify the cheerleaders and vampires within your organization, and the difference between employee satisfaction and engagement ?

Hear the pros and cons of a formal policy versus a more lenient and creative approach, learn ways to educate employees of your expectations and get tips on how to deal with those who push the boundaries.
