The world is in a serious quagmire of trust, or the lack of it. Fortunately we – the Baby Boomers and GenXers – are in a perfect position to bring trust back through the power and credibility of our own voices (and we mean that literally.)
In the infamous words of Aladdin in Disney's movie of the same name, “Do you trust me?”
Jasmine's reaction is a very uncertain “yes,” and that pretty much sums up this week's discussion in the Grey Matters podcast. Whether you're venturing into a chat room or listening to this podcast religiously (we certainly hope you are!) or connecting with your business customers, trust these days is at the heart of every interaction we have.
And it's no wonder. According to Edelman's Trust Barometer (polling respondents in 28 countries), we have been in a trust bankruptcy of late which has thrown the world for a loop. Who can you trust? Who should you trust? And, more to the point, who are you trusting – or mistrusting – right now?
In this episode, Steve and Rachel chat about:
- the shiny new penny that is Clubhouse on iOS devices
- how audio/voice is ushering us all into a new frontier of trust
- ways we as business professionals can make the most of today's trust deficiencies
It's a great episode. You can take our word for it.
