FranklinCovey’s Speed of Trust Practice develops powerful processes that increase trust on the personal, team, relationship, and organizational levels leading to lowered costs and faster results. Trust relationships are vital to the conduct of business.

The Challenge Low Trust = Reduced Speed & Increased Costs In today’s global economy, trust related problems like redundancy, bureaucracy, fraud and turnover slows down productivity, diverts resources and clouds opportunities eating into organisation’s profitability. What’s more, a lack of trust among customers chips away at your organisational brand and reputation. Our Solution Our Leading at the Speed of Trust Solutions raises trust to a strategic advantage in the marketplace. We engage leaders at all levels in the real work of identifying and closing the trust gaps in your organization and instead of paying outrageous “Trust Taxes,” your organization can begin to realize “Trust Dividends.” Doing business at the “Speed of Trust” dramatically lowers costs, speeds up results, and increases profits and influence. Leaders who make building trust an explicit goal of their jobs elevate trust from an often ignored asset or liability to a strategic advantage – accelerating growth, enhancing innovation, improving collaboration and execution and increasing shareholder value.
You may not be able to control everything, but you can influence certain things. Trust starts with you. – Stephen M.R. Covey
How is the lack of trust hindering results? All too often people’s agendas or personal motivations prevent others from trusting their word and ultimately getting things done. In a low trust environment, workers become suspicious of each other and of the organisation; guarded communication, speculation, and disengagement, slows productivity down and fuels frustration.
Our Working at the Speed of Trust Solution helps individual contributors identify and address ‘trust gaps’ in their own personal credibility and in their relationships at work. Using examples based on your current work and real-world issues, you will discover how to communicate transparently with peers and managers, improve your track record of keeping commitments, focus on improving internal ‘ customer service’ with others who depend on your work, build trust and much more. When individuals trust each other – and are trusted by others – communication improves and productivity accelerates as attention is redirected towards team objectives.
Trust is a critical component in team performance. In fact, distrust is the basis for all team conflict causing missed deadlines and cost overruns.
Our Speed of Trust Simulation is a discovery learning board simulation with additional components to measure trust and create action plans. It uses traditional gaming elements – including a board, dice, and surprise events – to create a fun and disarming approach to a serious business topic.
