The corporate pantomime of trust

Davos: a pantomime stage for corporate leaders?

By Martin Vogel

Only a few days left to book for our opening Real Session of 2016: Robert Phillips on trust.

Robert has written a timely agenda setter co-inciding with the World Economic Forum at Davos. He castigates leaders who are fixated on fashioning corporate narratives which “feature the ‘T’ word with carefree abandon”.

Business leaders should think instead about trustworthiness – based on honesty, reliability, and competence. Trustworthiness is much more straightforward. Trustworthiness is personal and reciprocal and never a corporate command. “Corporate trust” is essentially a myth.

Robert has promised us a provocation on Thursday and, if you read the whole piece at Management Today, you’ll see that he’s likely to be as good as his word.

Don’t miss the discussion with Robert Phillips on 21st January.
