Leaders consistently believe they are more trusted than they actually are. Researchers call this the leadership trust gap. This trust gap is a problem for everyone. While most problems have elements outside your control, building trust is something within your control.
Trust has incredible value: it promotes innovation and allows us to adapt more quickly. Despite this, trust levels in today’s society are at historical lows. This means that those who ARE able to demonstrate trustworthiness and build trusting relationships can profoundly differentiate themselves from others.
In today’s challenging environments worldwide, those able to effectively build trust will be seen as a safe harbour, a place that customers turn to for help and recommend to others.

“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.

“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.

“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.”
