Trust is perhaps the most important element of a successful workplace and is crucial at all levels of an organization. A high-trust workplace cultivates a supportive and safe work environment, fostering individual career success, high-performing teams, and productive organizations. Businesses that have a high trust environment are more profitable; low trust costs businesses money and time. How do we build trust? What erodes trust? What does it mean to be trustworthy? These questions will be the focus for the presentation and panel discussion. During a presentation by Susan Morris, a coach specializing in working with women professionals in STEM, participants will review a definition of trust that is a combination of character and competence, discover behaviors that build or erode trust, and learn strategies to repair distrustful relationships. The panelists will share stories about how important trust is to their relationships in their roles as team leaders, managers, or executives. STEM professionals at all levels are invited to learn strategies to build, maintain, and repair trust to enhance collaboration and drive productivity in the workplace.
