Raiser Resource Group had the privilege of hosting the world authority on Trust, Stephen M. R. Covey on 30th and 31st of August 2016. Covey delivered 3 seminars during his time here; an exclusive CEO breakfast on 30th which brought together some of the country’s top business leadership, an exclusive seminar with Safaricom Limited and an open event on 31st with close to 200 business leaders from different companies.
The seminars gave the business leaders drawn from different industries an eye opening experience as they began to grasp the magnitude of the impact that trust has in a business. Covey gave a very compelling business case for trust, explaining how it is an economic driver and not merely a social issue as is often believed. He went ahead to explain how it is the most crucial leadership competency needed today by leaders. While this may seem challenging to many leaders, it is a learnable competency which anyone can achieve.
Covey further broke down the topic by providing a framework which leaders could use in creating a high trust culture in their businesses. This involves an inside-out approach which begins by creating self-trust. Only after this can one begin to establish trust relationships with others. In the end, the leaders discussed their action points which would provide a starting point for applying their learnings.
We trust that the event was the beginning of a transformation in the country as we move towards growing a high trust culture in our businesses and in society as a whole.
