Season Three Teaser


“Companies with high trust outperform the S&P 500 by a factor of three!”

We’re back! Welcome to Season Three of the Leadership Impact podcast. In this “teaser-isode,” we set the stage for this season’s topic: building and sustaining trust. So many of us think of trust as a luxury—it would be nice to have it, the thinking goes. But if we don’t get it, we can still get on with the business of getting stuff done. But therein lies the mistake that wreaks havoc on so many organizations. Trust is more than a “nice-to-have”! Trust is a necessary condition for success. Without trust, our big-ticket outcomes and wildly important goals don’t stand a chance. Building trust, then, isn’t a “soft skill” as many assume. It’s perhaps the most reliable predictor of hard, tangible business outcomes. In Season Three, Kari and Paul will guide you through restoring trust when it’s lost, and keeping it when it’s there.

Covered In This Episode:

0:48 – Trust is not a soft skill

2:34 – The inefficiency of distrustful environments

3:31 – The ROI of high-trust environments

4:56 – The Triple Advantage / Triple Penalty of Trust: Imagination, Decisions, and Actions

6:50 – An invitation to co-create this seasons of Leadership Impact

Notable Quotes:

“Companies with high trust outperform the S&P 500 by a factor of three!” 

“High performing organizations are high trust organizations.” 

“If we have trust, I will commit myself to outcomes beyond what an individual can perform.” 

“Think about inefficient meetings. If you actually add up everyone’s salary for that hour, these meetings are hugely expensive. If in that meeting, people are [engaged in] protective strategies—anything other than “I trust you, let’s get this stuff done”—that’s such an expensive, unproductive meeting!”
