We all live with the pervasive wish to proclaim our innocence and avoid blame. As long as it’s not our fault, we can live with anything. We accept employees who don’t take accountability for their work, leaders who don’t give employees the freedom to do their job, and relationships built on the rocky foundations of lack of trust.
Empowered people, leaders, and organizations avoid the blame game and instead reawaken an entrepreneurial spirit of creating something meaningful where they choose possibility over maintenance, courage over caution, and autonomy leading to interdependence over dependency. The struggle to deeply experience our freedom, build trust, and live with the weight of full accountability for the world we have created is not a problem to be solved but rather what can give meaning to our lives.
The starting point for action and change is always a conversation. In our Flawless Conversations® series, we create opportunities to break the old cycles of patriarchy and move to a culture of chosen accountability and belonging. In Building Trusting Relationships, participants are empowered to build trust with people where it is in doubt, where we do not connect, and where we do not agree. Trust is built when we can connect with people without judgment, value their point of view, and look for areas of agreement instead of differences. Our program empowers you to do so.
Building Trusting Relationships is the first in our series of Flawless Conversations® with more in development. It is offered in-person or virtually in public workshops or inside organizations. If you are interested in attending one of our public sessions, click here to see our upcoming workshops. If you are interested in bringing our program to your organization or joining our mailing list to be the first to hear about new offerings, complete this form and we’ll be in touch!
