About this event
We welcome Sandra Sucher in a fireside conversation with Shalene Gupta for a discussion on their book The Power of Trust: How Companies Build, Lose it, & Regain It." Trust, at every level of business & society, has never mattered so much & at the same time. CEOs, managers, presidents, governors - leaders at every level & in every institution - face vexing issues & trade-offs. Many flounder, especially in a turbulent era when confronted with multiple crises & constituencies demanding change. How to bridge these gaps requires a new understanding of just what trust is, how it can be built, & regained when lost.

Trust is, however, an elusive, even mushy, concept. Sandra Sucher & Shalene Gupta examine the science behind trust, grounding our understanding of why we humans trust in the first place, describing how customers, employees, community members & investors decide whether an organization or a person can be trusted. Creating & sustaining trust does not, they show, come from "reputation-building" & PR but by being the "real deal," creating products, services, & technologies that work, having good intentions, treating people fairly, & taking responsibility for all the impacts an organization creates, whether intended or not.

You will learn:

How to build a trust recovery plan in the post-pandemic era.

When to get political-and when silence is actually best.

Who's responsible for building & maintaining trust?

How to, in short, bridge the gap from where you are to where you should be.
