Learn practical solutions to maintain trust among teams facing transitions such as new team members, leadership changes, or institutional priorities.  


The changing nature of higher education includes shifts in team membership due to turnover and re organization, leadership transitions, and evolving institutional priorities. Leaders need to understand that trust is the foundation of a productive team, especially during times of transition. To foster and maintain trust, you must first understand why it is important, recognize when changes in the team environment warrant new or different strategies, and be able to deploy strategies that ensure a foundation of trust remains even in the face of changes.

In this two-hour virtual training, you will gain a deeper understanding of the concept of trust for team- building, what circumstances may necessitate action related to trust, and effective strategies to deploy when a team is experiencing transition.

To accomplish this, we will explore key questions including the following:

  • Why is establishing and nurturing trust important to productive teams?
  • How to pivot when changes happen that impact the team.
  • What are effective ways to maintain trust during periods of transition.


Who Should Attend

This training is designed for leaders who supervise professional staff at any level, and from any area, of the institution who want to understand how to maintain trust in their teams as they face internal and external transitions. This training will enable leaders to create more stability for their teams by understanding which strategies to deploy to maintain trust during challenging times.

Recording available 10 business days after the live training.
