KEYNOTE | Re-Evaluating Trust

Wednesday, October 21st, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

How to infuse HR strategy with this precious commodity.

What’s it all about? The word “trust” will echo throughout Strategic HR 2020 in very human, visceral terms. We are aa four-crisis confluence of a pandemic, social unrest, economic upheaval, and personal challengeIndividualsorganizations, and most particularly HR need trust in processes and trust in people to navigate these crises. So, put yourself in the shoes of a fighter pilot flying a night combat mission fifty feet above the ground – you better have trust in processes and trust in the 18-year old loadmaster in the back of the plane! Jason Harris joins us from Aurora, Colorado to share the story of the Tuskegee Airmen as a starting point for the evolution of trust in your workplace. He’ll use his former platform as a US Air Force combat pilot to draw the connection between leadership and trust, and he’ll share stories to help HR build a platform based on his No Fail Trust theory. Turning that theory into practice has three basic parameters: 1) Extensive training; 2) Trust in clear processes, and 3) Trust in the people to follow those processes. Earning trust requires constant work. Because it’s more than truth; it’s the need for people to have confidence in that truth. HR knows this instinctively – anything built on relationships must be built on trust. 

Why you’ll want to participate in this session. 

  • Consider HR’s crucial role in advocating for and building a culture of workplace trust, knowing that trust leads to empowerment and that it is an implicit foundation for all values systems. 
  • Discover the connectivity point between trust and your HR leadership role, by learning how to strategize situational awareness, employ appropriate and ethical assertiveness in your decision making, nurture adaptability and flexibility, and acquire a deep base of knowledge. 
  • Understand how trust merges into your HR and organizational brands, how you can measure trust by the quality of your internal and external relationships and communications, and how speaking truth to power need not sacrifice results.
