Technology that naturally facilitates connections and communications between individuals and groups...

While loitering and talking about ideas, we also want to have a little fun, share practical advice, and keep it lively so as not bore anyone, especially ourselves!

Permission to Speak Podcast. Hosted by Leadership Communications Expert Kelly Vandever. Episode #NUMBER - GUEST NAME. Permission to Speak is the video blog and podcast that loiters at the intersections of leaders who want their people to speak up, technology that facilitates connections, and results that serve an organization’s higher purpose. Topics covered in this episode include: - trust
- betrayal isn’t always the major type of malicious act that we think of
- betrayal continuum, from minor to major, from unintentional to intentional
- it’s the little betrayals that become insidious, they cumulate and people check out, they leave or stay as the walking wounded
- whether a betrayal is minor or major is in the eye of the beholder
- repeated betrayals can turn from minor to major, from unintentional to intentional over time
- The 3 dimensions of trust (the 3 C’s) = Character (we do what we say we’re going to do), Communications (we communicate openly and honestly), and Capabilities (acknowledge and leverage the skills of the people we’re working with
- 16 behaviors associated with these dimensions of trust
- Character behaviors: (1) managing expectations, (2) establishing boundaries, (3) delegating appropriately, (4) encouraging mutually serving intentions, (5) keeping agreements (and renegotiating when we cannot), (6) being consistent
- Communications behaviors: (7) sharing information, (8) telling the truth, (9) admitting mistakes, (10) giving & receiving constructive criticism, (11) maintaining confidentiality, (12) speaking with good purpose
- Capability behaviors: (13) acknowledging people’s skills & abilities, (14) empowering people to make decisions, (15) involving others and seeking their input, and (16) helping people learn skills
- when a leader admits his mistakes it lets his people know he’s human and it give his people permission to admit their mistakes
- what causes us to talk behind other’s back: fear of not being able to do it right and because it will be awkward and messy, fear of looking and feeling vulnerable, fear of retaliation
- Reina trust assessments to measure trust at individual level, with leadership, within an organization and within a team.
- Trust isn’t just a nice thing to have. There’s a real business impact. One team saved $1M in strategic planning costs by increasing trust within the executive team! It wasn’t always pretty. But the results were worth it.
