Captain George Dom, Former Naval Officer and Aviator will present the opening Keynote Address at the ACCED-I 38th Annual Conference on March 18th. Through his presentation, High-Performance Leadership and Teamwork, attendees will understand why a culture of high-trust is critical to achieving individual and organizational high performance, discover the 5C’s of trustworthiness: Character, Commitment, Competence, Connection, and Communication, and develop a high-trust action plan with specific, immediate actions.
In the knowledge-based economy, high performance is all about relationships, strong and enduring relationships with all stakeholders, and the fundamental ingredient for every successful relationship is trust.
For naval aviators, flying off aircraft carriers a thousand miles from land (often in the middle of the night) trust is essential not just for success, but survival. There can be no compromise in that extreme laboratory of high performance. If you weren’t trusted, you’d fail or be fired; if you can’t trust others, you’ll either fail or look for another line of work.
Trust is the cornerstone to be an effective leader; it’s the glue that keeps the team firing on all cylinders. Within a culture of trust, there is an upward spiral of achievement based on creativity, determination, accountability, excellence, passion, camaraderie, humor, candor, and resilience. Allowing a culture of mistrust (due to fear, incompetence, and/or integrity gaps) will result in the opposite.
