We currently live in a low trust culture. And we know trust is important for leaders, in good times and in times of stress, disruption, and turn-around. Kevin is joined by Joel Peterson, Chairman of JetBlue Airways, Founding Partner of Peterson Partners, and author of The 10 Laws of Trust. Joel shares some of those laws of trust and understands that organizations succeed when leaders and colleagues trust each other. Instead of worrying about micromanaging, jealousy, and office politics, teams are more creative and have a positive impact on the bottom line. In this episode, Joel shares 1. Organizational levels of trust. 2. The connection between expectations and trust. 3. The role of respectful conflict and trust. 4. How to fix a breach of trust.

You know those good days. You wake up energized and confident. You cross stuff off your list, have productive meetings, make good decisions. In short, you are your best self.

It is these challenges we face and how we overcome them that define who we are and offer perspective. Kevin sits down with Bobby Herrera, co-founder and CEO of the Populus Group and author of The Gift of Struggle: Life-Changing Lessons About Leading.

He shares stories from his leadership journey and challenges us to share our stories (regardless of our level) to give our team the why; to connect. Now you all can figure out the how together.
