Every community is built for a reason, or with a value in mind, ranging from exploration of shared interest, to professional/personal growth, to simply sharing something personal. No matter the subject, the members and the leaders both need to cultivate trust from the other.
Join our facilitated panel discussion and hear from community leaders about how they have developed a culture of trust, and the impact trust has had on their personal and professional growth, as well as the growth of their community.
What you will learn at this event:
- How community leaders build trust from their members
- How to know if your community trusts you as a leader/ trusts other members.
- Specific and actionable steps to cultivate trust
