Bridgwater's Breakfast Club with guest speaker David Pardey
A substantial body of research has shown that trust is one of the most significant factors in leadership effectiveness. It also improves organisational effectiveness by helping to build employee engagement and reducing operating costs and staff turnover. Businesses with high levels of trust simply perform better than low trust organisations. However, building trust isn’t easy - on the other hand, it’s very easy to lose! Building trust is like a game of snakes and ladders, with a few, very short ladders and lots of long and very slippery snakes.
David Pardey, author of Introducing Leadership and Building and Leading Teams, and former Head of Research at the Institute of Leadership & Management, was instrumental in creating the ILM’s Index of Leadership Trust in 2009. Over three years, the ILM set out to measure levels of trust across all sectors finding, for example, that CEOs are generally less well trusted than line managers and that University chiefs are the least trusted CEOs in the UK! At September’s Breakfast Club he will explain why trust is so important, why it it is lacking in so many organisations and what needs to be done to build leadership trust and help build organisational performance. In particular, he will focus on the behaviours that good managers need to develop if they are to become great leaders.
Pleanty of time for networking and a great speaker!
