The Seven Elements of Trust

Janna Hare

Working + Leading — Without trust, there can be no meaningful connection between people. Trust is critical in every aspect of our lives, yet we struggle with how to talk about it. When we say “I just don’t trust you” to someone, it rarely helps. It’s overwhelmingly painful to hear and it gives us no direction about what specifically needs to change.

In this session, we’ll dig into what trust is, how it works, and how we can inventory and talk about the seven elements of trust in a meaningful and productive way. Trust is a product of vulnerability that grows over time and requires work, attention, and full engagement. Trust isn’t the grand gesture that we think it is —it’s a growing collection of small choices that we make every day.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to identify the seven elements of trust and how the BRAVING inventories can be used as a powerful tool to understand and talk about trust 
  • How to recognize and talk about specific trust building behaviors that are important to YOU

How to more clearly identify and address breaches of trust within your personal and professional relationships
