Joel Peterson will discuss how one can be intentional about building a high-trust organization, the nature of trust and it’s variations, protecting again the risk of betrayal, and what to do when trust has been breached

Trust is the glue that holds an organization together. It turns deflection into transparency, suspicion into empowerment, and conflict into creativity. With it, a tiny company like John Deere grew into a worldwide leader. Without it, a giant corporation like Enron toppled.In 

The 10 Laws of Trust

, JetBlue chairman Joel Peterson explores how a culture of trust gives companies an edge. Consider this: What does it feel like to work for a firm where leaders and colleagues trust one another? Freed from micromanagement and rivalry, every employee contributes his or her best. Risk taking and innovation become the norm. And, as Peterson notes, "When a company has a reputation for fair dealing, its costs drop: Trust cuts the time spent second-guessing and lawyering."In clear, engaging prose, highlighted by compelling examples, Peterson details how to establish and maintain a culture of trust. Steps include:

Start with integrity - Invest in respect - Empower everyone - Require accountability - Create a winning vision - Keep everyone informed - Budget in line with expectations - Embrace conflict - Forget "you" to become an effective leader - And more

    Mr. Peterson's talk impacted me on a deeper level. I believe him when he said that it can also improve marriages, relationships between family members and friends. It would be an awesome 5-day seminar to experience and understand most of the laws :)
    Thank you, Raj Lal and the team for making this Meetup happen! I am very glad that I came here tonight :)

    Raj, thank you for putting this together this was by far the best talk I've been to. Joel gave a lot of sage advice for trust which is sorely lacking. I look forward to reading his book cover to cover multiple times

    The session was one of the best we had at Igniters. Joel Peterson is one of the nicest person I have met in my whole life. Building trust I believe is a life long process, and I I am also glad we all got a book to pursue the topic in more details.

    I've been to most of the Igniters meetups over the last two years, and it's one of my two favorite Meetups. I think Joel Peterson was one of our best speakers over that time. Bravo to the organizers for bringing him in.

    Q: Do you have suggestions for working with masterful manipulators who use subtle twists of truth, suggestion, humor and repetition to create an altered reality or control through chaos?

    November 2
