Ep #37: How to Build Trust at Work Using ‘15-Minute Ally’ Meetings

Episode art - How to Build Trust at Work Using 15-minute Ally Meetings

When I was growing up, my mom always told me that trust was everything.

Trust that you will keep your word. Trust that you will do what you say you’re going to do. Trust that you can do your job.

I know that YOU have already built a lot of trust in your organization. You’re an overachiever who has a reputation for going above and beyond expectations day after day (after day).

But...you may still be struggling to build THIS kind of trust: trust that you can do the job at a senior executive level.

To make matters worse, this trust is becoming harder to cultivate as we spend more time working from home and less time engaging face-to-face with the leadership team.

Luckily, I’ve cracked the code.

If you want to build the kind of trust that will get you promoted into a senior level executive role AND you can no longer depend on making small talk with your CEO between meetings, you need to tune into this episode.

I will give you a step-by-step process that will help you become “15-Minute Allies” with the executive leadership team so you can be top of mind when the next promotion rolls around.

What You'll Learn:

  • Why trust is built in between the meetings
  • Why you need to be proactive about building trust (and exactly how to do it)
  • The role unconscious bias plays when it comes to building trust in your organization
  • The three people you need to start building a relationship with, starting...yesterday
  • How to ask for, schedule, and run a ‘15-Minute Ally’ meeting with the leadership team
