Trust is a critical variable in organizational culture and leaders will often confirm the importance of developing trust. In this seminar we will draw on the research on trust to address the following questions.  What is trust?  How do we get it?  How do we keep it? What can we do to rebuild it when it is broken?  Professor will also discuss his current research project on cross-cultural aspects of trust.
