It seems intuitive to say that we build trust by influencing others. We get people to trust us. The Reinas’ 30 years of research into trust building® says otherwise. Leaders that focus instead on becoming trustworthy are the ones who build high-trust teams and organizations that shine. Trust begins with you®. Leaders that understand this also create powerful peer and customer relationships. Strong relationships lead to strong business results.

Reina Trust Building® clients are universal in expressing the need for trust in the workplace has never been greater! Leaders are feeling the stress and consequences of rapid changes that are challenging to keep pace with and make sense of. Many of the changes are new – heightened safety protocols, increased layoffs, furloughs, pay cuts, and changes to working relationships and workplace dynamics.
In organizations where trust is high, leaders who display strong character, communicate honestly and often, and trust their and their employees’ skills and capabilities will thrive in these challenging times. Conversely, in organizations where trust is vulnerable or regularly eroded, behavior and productivity look markedly different, as do business results.
Trust can be earned and strengthened during these difficult times in a way that will define your “new future”. The work will get done well through relationships, and effective relationships are built on trust – trust of character, of communication and of capability. It begins with you. We look forward to exploring with you, the positive impact of building a trust-based culture at work.

Dennis and Michelle co-founded Reina Trust Building®, to specialize in measuring, developing, and restoring workplace trust globally.
