About the Webinar:

Research provides strong evidence that organizations with a high degree of trust among employees are far more likely to make and sustain the kinds of changes that help them reach their goals and outcomes than those organizations where there is little or no trust among staff. This session described both empirical and conceptual research related to trust types. We explored the various types of trust as they relate to social and organizational life. In addition, we made connections between trust, trust types, relationship, communication and increased effectiveness in mediation and ADR outcomes. Run time: 54 minutes.
