Lead with Imperfection and Reduce the Trust Gap
As a leader of a successful business, it’s easy to feel like people expect you to have all the answers. For most high-level leaders, that expectation comes mostly from within. But the truth is that no matter how experienced and passionate you are about supporting your company and employees, you won’t reach your full potential unless you Lead with Your Imperfections. The more pressure you feel to be the perfect, all-knowing leader, the more you’ll actually alienate the people who are hungry to learn from you and eager to win for your business.
With a fully detailed, actionable system, we help leaders and business owners create a foundational shift in their workplace culture that results in deeper relationships, higher employee buy-in, and a performance and revenue transformation that will propel you to the next level of success. With an understanding of the real power of vulnerability, you and your entire team will master the skills and habits to stand out in your field and create an unbeatable workplace culture that will attract the best talent and highest-level clientele.
Trust Unlimited will work with you to identify, analyze, and diagnose your past and present trust problems, and give you the tools to forge stronger relationships to increase your effectiveness and performance.

True Growth for Your Team
We know that trust is linked to successful performance, and that many other factors of success are out of your control. Let TU hone your ability to build strong relationships. These relationships are what differentiates exceptional from merely good leaders; the ability to build trusting relationships is within your control. Working with TU, you will:
How TU helps you
Our coaches deliver high-impact, trust-focused services that align leaders’ behaviour with organizational objectives and strategy, increase team performance, and enhance collective ability to move forward.
Most coaching takes two forms: individual and team. Each approach has benefits, and they can be combined or act independently. We will help you understand and apply the TU trust framework to your existing relationships and trust problems.
For individuals or teams, sessions with a TU-trained coach, using the TU model as a map for strengthening relationships, are a powerful intervention and have yielded remarkable results.
Small Group Lessons
Collaborative learning in small groups allows individuals to share practical takeaways from TU's trust framework in a safe and supportive environment. By exchanging feedback and problem-solving, participants can build alignment around shared experiences and internalize individual experiences. The focus on practical applications of trust materials elevates the group's ability to understand and implement the framework.
The workshop spans one to two days and covers TU's trust model. It simplifies complex relational issues by exploring each element in detail, providing theoretical concepts and real-life case examples. Exercises such as worksheets, role-plays, and discussions help participants understand how to apply the ask-listen-respond approach. The workshop provides a clear understanding of how trust works and actionable steps to build and strengthen relationships.
TU has a proprietary, empirically tested and verified, diagnostic toolset that allows a group to measure and improve trust. This can be focused on Organizational, Team or Individual needs.
To scale up building trust in a larger group or organization, Trust Unlimited provides workshops, team experiences, small group learning, and online resources. The focus is an applied, individualized learning experience underpinned by navigation of trust problems and development of the knowledge and experience necessary to internalize TU’s trust framework.
We take a customized approach based on the results of a trust assessment and the development of a deeper understanding of your situation. This includes surveys, interviews, and research, and results in a recommended approach in alignment with your desired outcomes.
As a further supplement to the workshop material, we develop support material tuned to your specific context. This may include videos, case studies, and vignettes illustrating how the various elements of the trust model are playing out in your organization.

WHY AREN’T YOU INVESTING IN TRUST?
“I have worked as a consultant (McKinsey & Company), as the Director of Corporate Strategy for the TMX Group, and now as Executive VP for Canada Overseas, a multi-family office. I have known Darryl through all of those stages, first as a colleague and friend, then as an executive coach and thought partner. The roles I have filled over the last few years have included many complex financial, strategic and relationship issues. My most recent role has required the ability to resolve complicated business challenges and deal with varying interpersonal dynamics. I find my conversations with Darryl helpful in both resolving existing problems and avoiding potential future ones.
Executive Vice-President, Canada Overseas
“I write in the highest possible recommendation of Darryl Stickel, President and CEO of Trust Unlimited.
“As an associate professor at Cal State Fullerton and a former manager in a Fortune 50 company, I am in a unique position to evaluate Darryl Stickel’s special talents.
“Darryl and I have known each other as colleagues and friends for over 20 years. It is unusual to see the combination of conceptual clarity and practical application that Darryl has achieved with his trust research, work that has been acknowledged by academic leaders within the trust literature, and that has also produced dramatic performance outcomes in actual work settings.
Associate Professor of Management, California State University-Fullerton Mihaylo College of Business
“Darryl Stickel brings to his client work a powerful mix of personal empathy and rigorous analytics. One-on-one or with a larger group, he is quick to build rapport with others and, appropriately enough, convey his own trustworthiness, listening closely to clients’ concerns. What he offers, however, is much more than a sympathetic ear. By applying the trust model he developed during his PhD work in organizational behavior, and further refined through his experiences as a consultant to organizations large and small, Darryl leaves clients with not just immediate insights into their situations, but a toolkit they can use on an ongoing basis. I have had the pleasure of knowing Darryl as a colleague and a friend for over 20 years and would not hesitate to recommend his coaching services to anyone seeking to understand and improve their professional relationships.”

“Trust Unlimited has provided us the code for unlocking the trust puzzle. While everyone talks about trust, the Trust Unlimited model brings a structure that allows us to do something about it. The Trust Unlimited team provided us with concrete solutions for existing problems and the ability to develop new solutions for what had previously been fuzzy trust-based problems.”

Director of Continuous Improvement,
“I have to say that I use [TU’s] model all the time. It has framed my thinking on how to structure our entire sales and communication strategy to deal with a failing product that badly scarred our reputation in the UK. The guy who hired me (the CEO) said he has never seen anyone achieve so much traction so fast in his entire career.”
Global Investment Firm
“In the mutual fund industry, we ask people to trust us with their hopes and dreams for the future. This relationship has been seriously damaged over the last several years. The trust model employed by Trust Unlimited has provided us with the means to accurately diagnose the source of these trust problems and effectively address them.”

“Working with Dr. Stickel was instrumental in building my understanding of the role trust plays in driving inter-group conflict and was a key element in shaping my work in assessing and analyzing the impact of Canadian operations in Southern Afghanistan. Using this view and model of trust between parties separated by worldviews and cultural divides helped in building practical applications for negotiating and assessing conflicts between Afghan communities and Canadian soldiers, insight that also simultaneously provided an analytic framework for understanding and measuring changes in our relationships with the Afghan peoples.”
