About This Topic

Rich Diviney knows that any team can excel in fair weather but when times are tough, only teams built on a strong foundation of trust can accomplish what others find impossible. He draws from 20+ years of experience as a Navy SEAL Officer to help leaders discover how they can take their teams to the next level.

Build Trusting Teams draws from Simon’s books, The Infinite Game and Leaders Eat Last, as well as Rich Diviney’s The Attributes, to explore practical and actionable steps for establishing trust that will optimize your team’s performance.

In exploring the characteristics of a trusting team, your leaders will be challenged to look beyond talent and competence to examine the elements that truly distinguish remarkable teams (and human beings) from everyone else.

This experience allows participants to dive into the reasons that some teams, even those stacked with talent, don’t excel—and how to turn it around.

  • Unpack how trust acts as a vital component for high performing teams
  • Uncover the four core components necessary in building trust
  • Understand why seeking “resilience” is not enough and what to do about it
  • Explore how throwing away outdated Task Organization Charts is key to improving your team’s performance
