“There’s nothing more important than trust when it comes to building a cohesive team. Without it, everything else falls apart.” 


- Jeff Gibson

“When a leader takes that first step into vulnerability and shares their own struggles, questions, challenges and mistakes […] you open the door to honest dialogue that will bring out the best ideas, and ultimately unlock the potential your team has to impact and shape the organization in meaningful ways.”

- Daniel Harkavy

Episode Show Notes

Trust. It’s a simple word that serves as the source of so much fear, difficulty and confusion in our lives. This is especially true at work, where trust between team members isn’t always easy to come by. But research shows that trust is perhaps the number one thing that healthy teams have in common, and that unhealthy teams desperately need. But trust requires hard work, vulnerability and commitment. So how do you build it?

Join us as we learn from Jeff Gibson—President of Consulting with The Table Group—about why trust is so important and how you and your team can start making it a priority.
