Session Description

Emerging trends in Higher Education includes crisis management of producing results to solve problems. Leadership faces an ethical crisis that stops our work, decreases bottom line decision-making and wipes out hope. The crisis is a lack of trust. Trust changes everything! Low trust causes friction, hidden agendas, interpersonal conflict, interdepartmental rivalries, win-lose thinking and defensive communication. All of these reduce trust. The lack of trust is created by our behavior and taking the exponential leap of faith that makes all the difference in restoring it. Impacting ethics is one of the hot topics today as it is fundamentally important. The hope for the future lies with trust as the root of ethical decision making, communication and the most important is working relationship to produce in the workplace. Trust is something you can do something about. Come and join this conversation to learn how you can create trust!
