Change is inevitable, and a leader needs to prepare to adapt. Evidence shows that leader and manager trust and credibility are critically important for efficient and profitable functioning. Times of organizational adaptation place a special premium on trust and credibility, because both are especially important during these times. Unfortunately, both are also especially endangered. This session will present evidence and straightforward tools to recognize and manage these essential employee attitudes.
