Building High Trust Teams

Our goal as leaders is to create high performing teams in order to deliver exceptional results to the customers we serve. But creating a high performing team isn’t just about the process or the product, it’s about the people. Research continually shows that the highest performing teams have Psychological Safety, defined as “A belief that one will not be punished or humiliated for speaking up with ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes." 


To create Psychological Safety requires us to build high trusting relationships, especially between leaders and their team members. Take a deep dive into what Psychological Safety is, & its connection to trust, steps you can take to build high trusting teams, and tips for how you can repair a relationship where trust is gone. 


Benefits & Culture: Is Your Organization Really Family Friendly?

Many organizations tout their family friendly environment and work-life balance, but is this realistic? Organizational decisions must fit your mission, culture, and processes. Parental leave, vacation and sick time, recognition, and many other benefits have a strong impact on company culture. Your culture quite simply is what your people say it is, it’s not what you put on your poster.


Learn about trending benefits and how they impact your business metrics and productivity.

Beth led her organization to record revenue and membership growth, while simultaneously spearheading a cultural transformation.
