tier2_fallTrust is essential for any organization to succeed in today’s competitive environment. The next Leadership Development Workshop at Moraine Valley Community College will be “Building Trust” on Thursday, Nov. 5, from 7:30 to 10 a.m. The workshop will be in the Moraine Business and Conference Center, Building M, on campus, 9000 W. College Pkwy., Palos Hills. The cost to attend is $35.

Research has found that organizations with high levels of trust are more credible, productive, flexible, innovative, able to adapt to changing circumstances, and effectively handle crises. Not only is trust essential for an organization, but also for individuals, especially those in leadership or managerial positions.

In this program, participants will learn how trust improves relationships at all levels, how to exemplify the characteristics and behaviors of a trustworthy person, how a team can embody those traits and ultimately reduce the stress that often results from low levels of trust, improve reputation, and increase team members’ productivity, innovation and ability to work effectively with others.

Key topics covered are various perspectives of what it means to trust, personal attributes and behavior that make people and organizations most trustworthy, ways leaders can set the example and establish a solid foundation for trust, and more.

Networking and a continental breakfast begin at 7:30 a.m., and the program begins at 8 a.m. Register for this workshop at mvccevents.eventbrite.com.
