About Us

Who We Are

Culture of trust is a collaborative organizational program designed to help businesses and individuals create a lasting culture of change. We focus on building diverse, inclusive, and exceptional work cultures through coaching, consulting, training, and speaking.  A culture of trust yields higher engagement, happier employees, greater productivity, and higher profits.

What We Do

We consult with business executives and work with cross-functional teams to transform your culture from the inside out. By evaluating the current culture of a company (the “as is”), we design, develop, and implement a value system with your executives and teams which then promotes an organization-wide culture change (the “should be”). We are proud to work with you on your communication efforts and overall change management needed for success. We believe implementation is successful when executives and cross-functional teams establish values with agreed upon behaviors. This helps with buy in for the rest of the company. We’re here to empower you to make a culture change that lasts!

Our culture programs answer the following questions:

  • How to develop a value plan and put it into action
  • Why value demonstration is a key principle for successful leadership
  • How to successfully live out your company values
  • Why hiring, firing, and rewarding values is essential for organizational success
  • How to establish a discipline for sustaining a values-centric and trust culture

Through our corporate training programs, consultations, executive & holistic coaching, and speaking engagements, we also educate others on issues of sexual harassment, organizational transformation strategies, and successful leadership initiatives.

“To be authentic, we must cultivate the courage to be imperfect — and vulnerable. We have to believe that we are fundamentally worthy of love and acceptance, just as we are. I’ve learned that there is no better way to invite more grace, gratitude and joy into our lives than by mindfully practicing authenticity.”
