Research has clearly identified high levels of trust as a primary driver of new business generation and customer retention. Trust acts as a social lubricant, allowing us to seamlessly transition in times of rapid change. Higher trust levels lead to a happier and more engaged workforce that results in better emotional and mental health. Strong, trusting relationships are the basis for resilience and adaptability within a group, team, organization or family.
Trust levels in today’s society are at historical lows; there has been a perceived decline in ethics, integrity, and conduct worldwide. The general public has remarkably little trust in government, public and private sector organizations, or in the leadership of those organizations. Recent events have done little to move this in a positive direction.
Like most challenges, this trust crisis also presents an incredible opportunity for those who are able to get it right. In environments like the ones we are seeing all over the world, those able to effectively build trust will be seen as a safe harbour:
- A place where customers want to do business and that they tell their friends about
- An organization that both attracts and retains the best people
- An institution that is seen as a thought leader whose opinions have weight

“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.

“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.”
