The Brightspot Trust,the founders of trust-centered leadership,
The Trusted Leader Lab
Trust-centered. Practical. Transformative. Fun.
We are facing the biggest leadership challenge of our time.
Leadership used to be about commanding authority, wielding power, and making things happen through force.
The thing is, times are changing. In today’s knowledge economy, we need leaders that people choose to follow. We need leaders who flourish in ambiguity, then pave the way by asserting what to do. We need leaders who can enroll others on the journey of change. We need leaders that can include and unleash the diversity of their teams.
The most successful leaders of today and tomorrow have shifted their posture to a different, more effective way forward: one centered in trust.
We need YOU to be a trusted leader.
Thriving organizations are built on trust.
Trust: nothing is more important to our survival. It’s a fundamental component of social capital. It’s the bridge to connection and collaboration. It enables us to be courageous and creative. It’s the most critical leadership asset of our time.
Imagine an organization where people:
These are attributes of an organization built on trust.
Trust-centered behaviours constitute a better way of doing business for all. And we need leaders like you to be equipped with the skills to earn, strengthen, and restore trust.
Become the trusted leader you were meant to be.
Trust-centered is a posture, a practice, a collection of real 21st century leadership skills that can be learned.
Developing trust-centered leadership skills is not a passive process. It’s not a 2-day off-site retreat jam-packed with theoretical concepts and bad coffee where you forget 95% of the content the next day.
Our curriculum is hands-on. The Trusted Leader Lab is a practical online workshop designed to help you develop the most critical leadership asset today: the ability to earn, strengthen, and restore trust.
Without guidance and structure, it can take a lifetime to haphazardly develop these crucial 21st century skills.
The Trusted Leader Lab accelerates your leadership transformation, equipping you with the competence and confidence to fast-track your career trajectory. It offers a supported context for you to learn, develop, and practice real trust-centered skills and approaches to help you succeed and define the future of work.
It’s a practical process intentionally designed with time to apply what you learn, to reflect on your learnings, to progressively learn and practice stackable leadership skills, to see and step into new possibilities, and to convene with coaches and peers committed to your success.
The Lab coursework is anchored in trust-centered principles and flexible frameworks that help you better lead yourself, lead another, and lead at scale. It provides a potent context for you to learn the leadership skills of tomorrow that will help you build a thriving organization and deliver meaningful results.
The Trusted Leader Lab includes:
