FilmS OVERVIEW

Here are a few films that help to unpick the theory behind trust and shine a light on what it takes to build bonds that endure.

It has been said that trust is the glue that holds people, organisations and societies together.

In this TEDx talk on ‘Building Trust’ James H Davis, a professor of strategy management and the chairman of the Management Department at Utah State University, tries to uncover: what trust is, why we trust the people we do trust and how we can be deemed trustworthy.

He describes how trust goes hand in hand with risk and pinpoints three qualities which guides our willingness to trust; ability, benevolence and integrity.

By demonstrating these qualities we can build trust not only in our individual relationships but in our organisations as a whole.

Simon Sinek presents a simple but powerful model for how leaders inspire action, starting with a golden circle and the question "Why?"

His examples include Apple, Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers.

Brene Brown on The Anatomy of Trust. 

Brene is the inspirational author of Daring Greatly - is a grounded theory researcher who has lead the world in helping us understand what builds trust and what takes it away.
