How Do You Repair Broken Trust

How Do You Repair Broken Trust

Heath Slawner believes that when we meaningfully connect with and inspire one another, we rise well beyond what we could do alone. Specializing in strategic communication and leadership, Heath is fascinated by human behavior and has built a career learning and sharing his insights with leading organizations around the world. In his keynotes, workshops and training sessions, Heath uses stories, studies and basic biology to show that trust is at the heart of it all.

What drives decision-making? What brings teams together to achieve remarkable results? How do we inspire action and motivate people to say “yes” to joining us in realizing our vision?

Heath proves that trust and purpose–based on a palpable concern for others–are key to having a high performing team. When we’re clear about why we’re here, where we’re going, who we serve and how we’re getting there, people start to feel valued and fulfilled. As a consequence, the natural response is that people seek out ways to collaborate, execute and bring bold visions to reality. This is the reason Heath believes that for all of our differences, we are stronger together than we could ever be alone.

Heath is the only professional in Canada certified to deliver and facilitate the Principles of Persuasion, an evidence-based program based on the work of renowned psychologist Dr. Cialdini which dramatically enhances one’s ability to drive and inspire change.

Heath has a degree from the Wharton School of Business. He works with clients across the world in a variety of industries including government, international affairs, consumer products, restaurant, hospitality, telecommunications, education, non-profit, financial and banking services. Heath lives in Montreal, Canada.

Interacting With Influence

We influence others every day of our lives, whether it is intentional or not; every conversation, every interaction is another opportunity to move people in our direction and inspire action. Though we face these challenging interpersonal situations every single day, rarely do we have the opportunity to sharpen these skills and learn the difference between what works and what doesn’t. Interacting with Influence is an evidence-based approach to building powerful working relationships and gaining commitment to achieve the best outcomes for all stakeholders. Building on the idea that you cannot influence without trust, Heath challenges the audience to think more strategically about the levers to increase trustworthiness, such as intimacy and selflessness, and to apply the scientifically-proven influence techniques that yield optimal results.

Leaders Eat Last

Heath draws on material from Simon Sinek’s second book, Leaders Eat Last, and his own examples of working within extraordinary teams, to explain how leaders can harness the natural biological drivers that exist in us all to create an environment where people are inspired to cooperate to create remarkable results.

Start With Why

Heath Slawner shares a powerfully simple idea, discovered by Simon Sinek, called “The Golden Circle” and builds upon it with examples and stories that bring it to life. This simple idea explains how great leaders, companies, and organizations that inspire us are able to do so naturally and consistently. “The Golden Circle” unravels the mystery of how we must think, act and communicate to inspire others. Here’s a hint: it’s not about changing who we are, it’s about understanding who we are.

Trusted Relationships, Remarkable Outcomes

Today’s workplaces tend to be full of cynicism, paranoia, and self-interest. But the best organizations foster trust and cooperation because their leaders articulate a vision of the future, by Starting with Why and creating a Circle of Safety that separates the security inside the team from the threats outside. These actions allow us to build trust-based relationships so that we can create more value, collaborate more effectively and deliver innovative solutions to customers, partners and end-users.
