The Trust Issue and You...Navigating Next Steps
• Understand and apply the foundations of creating, sustaining, and repairing trust with self, individuals, and teams • Develop a sense of trust as a dynamic state of being with ebbs and flows • Understand how trust impacts strategic objectives, culture states, and outcomes • Apply self-trust in tough situations, conversations, and decisions to access confidence and resilience • Create cultures grounded in self-trust, self-awareness, and nimble learning
Sometimes we’re trapped in the overwhelming amount of data and information while we try to decide and then no decision is made. Perhaps we’re thinking about the last time we made a similar decision, and it did not go well. Maybe it feels like decisions are constantly second guessed, including by yourself. Let’s come together and work on some foundations of trust. Will we talk about trust in organizations and among stakeholders? Sure, but we’ll start with a tiny microclimate of trust. Your self-trust.
Are you a trusted advisor to yourself? When you look at the SHRM Body of Knowledge and Competency, are you where you want to be in your career, and confident about the value you bring? Are you harboring some impostor syndrome? Do you believe someone else should have gotten the promotion? The last few years have been challenging and, in many ways, the burnout is driving a lack of self-trust. If you don’t trust yourself, how do you trust your decisions?
