KEYNOTE: Building Trust Within Your Team

• David Silverman, former Navy SEALs Officer, Author of "Team of Teams", Founder & CEO of CrossLead

The world is changing faster than ever, and the smartest response for those in charge is to empower small teams, lead by influence, drive common purpose, and consistently communicate learnings across the organization. Trust is a key component that teams need in order to be successful. Trust is characterized by faith in the intent and competence of one’s colleagues. It is the foundation of authentic relationships between individuals on a team.

KEYNOTE: Creating Practices to Reinforce Trust, Safe Spaces, and Learning

• James Birchler, VP of Engineering @ SmugMug

Trust is fundamental to a great team but how do you get there? We face time limits, resource constraints, and other pressures that can make it difficult for our people to do their best work. We’ll review and discuss strategies for managers to establish and maintain trust, one method your organization can use to drive continuous learning, and a framework for establishing a community of practice that reinforces candid communication, trust, and autonomy--all critical to ensuring your team is empowered to make the right things happen.
