Trust-Based Leadership

Trust-Based Leadership is a comprehensive, one-day workshop designed for frontline and middle managers in leadership positions. This program was created by one of the most influential writers and researchers on trust, Charlie Green. Charlie has written three best-selling books about trust, including Trust-Based Selling and The Trusted Advisor.
