How to Build Organizational Trust
One of the keys to better leadership, according to research, is trust.
↑ Trust = ↑ Speed ↓ Cost
Increased trust among coworkers produces an increased speed of efficiency and a decrease in cost because they are able to get more things done.
The neuroscience is clear on the benefits of trust:
- 19% more productive
- 22% more innovative
- 33% less sick days
- 28% more energy
- 69% higher job retention
How We Build Trust in Leaders
Our leadership brand tool and the companion book The Elevator Pitch of You works to build trust by accomplishing two things:
1. Open’s the blind spot to better self-knowledge.
Key to being able to communicate to others is self-knowledge of what you value, where you need help and your communication preferences.
2. Open’s higher level conversations.
By opening ourselves up to greater understanding we can move our conversations from, as our partner Judith E Glaser frames in her book Conversational Intelligence, simple ask|tell to share|discover
Why is it important to have a leadership brand?
Absolute-North has been working with leaders for more than a decade. What we have found is that having a clear statement of leadership helps to better define the developmental goals of the leader in a direction that has clear focus and purpose. At the same time, it helps them to communicate to others their values and personal beliefs, an important step in improving collaboration.
Our Leadership Brand Tool
Our goal in creating the leadership brand tool was to take people step-by-step through the process of discovering more about themselves, and then taking that information and helping them to formulate that into a unique and personal brand statement.

Where should people use their statements?
One of the best uses we have seen the statements that come from this exercise is to post to the LinkedIn summary. Today social media is invaluable as a tool for learning about others we work with, both externally and internally. Our leadership brand tool helps others to understand who you are in a simple, concise and clear way.
