How to build workplace trust and communication for healthy teams

Meg Mittelstedt

You’ve developed a diverse and inclusive team at work. So why are people withholding their ideas and expertise, avoiding engagement or – worse yet – not sharing information with the group?

In this webinar, you’ll learn how building healthy conflict can rectify these issues. You’ll also discover how trust and communication can cultivate a workplace culture where all ideas – even thorny topics or difficult conversations – are debated while ensuring that everyone’s voice is heard. And you’ll find out why building trust is a must for commitment, accountability, and results.

Attend this session to gain practical insights that you can apply right away. What’s more, you’ll acquire resources and tools to delve deeper into these concepts with your team.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Understand factors causing trust breakdown within teams, particularly during the realities of virtual work.
  • Evaluate the functioning of current teams at work.
  • Learn how to identify the difference between “smart” and “healthy” teams.
