“Culture drives performance, and managers drive culture. So, the key to creating a high-performance culture is to create high-trust relationships, particularly between managers and their teams. Building high-trust is mostly about getting the basics right – keeping promises, really listening, living with integrity. It’s not complicated – most of us have been doing it effortlessly since birth…my role is to help people unleash that natural expertise.”
