Building and maintaining relationships requires a strong foundation of trust. Trust is at the core of how we live, work together, listen to one another, approach conflict, 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 and explore how to increase trustworthiness strengths in yourself or your organization. This workshop will provide the understanding and skills to become a lifelong catalyst for the development of trust at a professional and personal level.
