Trust Premium: Sell on TRUST and not Price

Join us for an illuminating keynote that explores the undeniable impact of trust in sales, backed by compelling statistics and research. In his groundbreaking Trust Premium™ research, Dr. Yoram Solomon found that a staggering 77% of individuals prioritize the trustworthiness of those they buy products or services from, surpassing all other qualities and relationships. Moreover, trustworthy salespeople, professionals, and brands are selected over 98% of the time over their competitors (Trust Preference™), and even command a remarkable up to 39.4% premium for the same item compared to their untrustworthy counterparts (Trust Premium™), while their competitors must dramatically reduce prices to compete with them. But this session isn't just about statistics—it's about actionable insights. Through real-world examples and the innovative relative and dynamic trust model, you'll discover how to cultivate your trustworthiness as a salesperson. Join us as we unlock the keys to sales success through the transformative power of trust.

Ethics, Laws, Values, and Trust: Where do we go from here?

In today's interconnected world, scams and spam inundate our digital landscape, eroding trust at an alarming rate. Statistics reveal a staggering rise in fraudulent activities, highlighting the dire need for vigilance. 56.5% of all emails are spam. 73% of those are trying to commit identity theft, and 36% are marketing and advertising for products and services we didn’t ask for. But where do we draw the line between ethical and legal behavior? Understanding the nuances between these bars is crucial, as the space between them often represents a moral gray area. Trust hinges on factors like personality compatibility, yet disparities in ethical standards can fracture even the strongest bonds. Our values shape our ethical thresholds and subsequent actions, but as societal norms evolve, so too does the erosion of these standards. When companies behave in unethical ways, the government steps in and creates laws to prevent that. But delegating ethical responsibility solely to laws and governments risks legitimizing unethical behavior. Can a code of ethics effectively set the bar? And is it enforceable? Should companies build ethical cultures instead? And how?

Trust in the Age of AI: From Deep Fakes to Ethical Frontiers

As a seasoned technologist and researcher of trust, Dr. Yoram Solomon has witnessed the meteoric rise of artificial intelligence and its far-reaching implications on our society. From the rapid proliferation of spam and scams to the increasing use of deep fakes in both ethical and unethical ways, AI has undoubtedly brought about significant changes. Identity theft is just one example of how AI can be misused, leaving many wondering about the future of this technology and its impact on trust. In this keynote, Dr. Solomon will delve into the history of AI, the current state of it, and explore the intersection between AI and trust. He will examine the various ways in which AI can be utilized for the greater good while acknowledging the potential risks associated with its advancement. Additionally, he will debate whether government regulation is necessary to ensure the responsible use of AI and maintain public trust in this powerful tool. His unique perspective as both a technologist and a trust researcher allows him to offer valuable insights into these complex issues, providing a balanced view of the opportunities and challenges presented by AI.

Can You TRUST Remote Employees in a Hybrid Workplace?

In this keynote, we delve into the transformation of work cultures influenced by the pandemic, emphasizing the shift to remote and hybrid workplaces as part of "the new normal." When COVID-19 brought the world to a standstill, organizations that adapted to remote work thrived, while others struggled. Post-pandemic, the debate between returning to traditional office settings versus continuing remote work has intensified. This keynote addresses the mixed effects of remote work, recognizing its benefits and challenges. While some employees now view remote work as a right, opinions on its impact on productivity vary widely. Central to this discussion is the understanding that trust is crucial for fostering productivity, creativity, and enjoyment in work environments. Utilizing Yoram Solomon's 8 laws of trust and the 6 components of the Relative Trust model, this keynote offers a balanced analysis and practical strategies for when and how to effectively implement remote work, ensuring trust remains intact across all work modalities.

Building Trust in Teams

In a world where teamwork underpins success, understanding and building trust within teams emerges as a cornerstone for high performance. This keynote delves into the dynamic nature of trust in teams, highlighting that trust isn't static or fixed but accumulates from the interplay of all individual relationships within the team. Teams rich in trust not only meet project deadlines, budgets, and specifications more consistently, but also enjoy heightened creativity, productivity, and workplace satisfaction. However, cultivating trust in teams presents unique challenges. Trust levels are contingent on the dynamics of each team member, particularly focusing on high-dependency relationships that may currently lack trust. This keynote will explore the layers of building trust, positioning it as the pinnacle of the trust pyramid, a step beyond nurturing individual trustworthiness. Further, we will tackle pivotal questions such as who is responsible for fostering trust and how the trustworthiness of the least trusted team member can influence the entire team. Additionally, we will discuss the optimal team size for maximizing trust, offering strategic insights for leaders, human resources professionals, and facilitators aiming to enhance team effectiveness through the deliberate development of trust.

The Hard Truths About Employee Engagement and TRUST

Employee engagement is critical for their well-being and company performance, and after a decade of increase, it has declined significantly in the past several years. Therefore, HR departments often conduct employee engagement surveys to gauge it. However, before you set off to conduct the survey, there are a few critical things you should know, because you may end up not hearing what you need to hear, but rather only what your employees think you want to hear, and because you might do more harm than good with those surveys. For one, while high trust causes 76% improvement in employee engagement, did you realize that the higher the trust level is, the lower the survey result will be? Sounds counterintuitive, but it is. You need to consider things such as the perception of anonymity and how it affects responses, how asking the wrong questions could bias the results, and the dangers of the statistical results. Conducting an employee engagement survey should never be done without a follow-on plan. Finally, this session would give you actionable advice regarding maintaining high employee engagement, because that’s the real reason you were conducting the survey. Wasn’t it?
