    Episode 15 - Trust Rules - With Guest, Bob Lee

    Episode 15 - Trust Rules - With Guest, Bob Lee

    About this Episode
    In this episode, I talk with Dr. Bob Lee, whose amazing research shows the importance of being trustworthy as a leader.  Bob shares some of the most profound (and sometimes surprising) findings about how trust is a crucial factor in keeping workplaces happy and healthy.

    About Our Guest



    (from Bob’s website)
    My area of expertise is in how and why the world’s best employers use great workplace cultures to drive competitive advantage.
    I’ve held various senior leadership positions with Great Place to Work Institute including four years as chairman of its Global Advisory Board, and I continue to support global multinational clients in my role as a senior consultant with Great Place to Work USA. I hold an MBA from the University College Dublin Smurfit Business School, and I live in Dublin, Ireland with my wife and family.
    Trust Rules is my first book, and I’ve recently started working on ‘the difficult second album’. Considering that it took me six years to research and write Trust Rules, the second book should hit the shelves sometime in 2023!
    As a professional public speaker, I deliver customized presentations for business leaders and their teams on topics related to how and why to create great workplaces. I’ve developed a number of talks that focus on the practical ways that managers build trust, with the scope to focus in on particular rules when that’s helpful.
    If you’re interested in exploring how I can help your organization to improve its performance by cultivating a high-trust workplace culture, let’s chat. Please get in touch.

    About Our Guest



    (Taken From Marty’s Website)
    I started as a graphic designer and copywriter in the 1970s. In 1984, when the Macintosh launched, I moved to Silicon Valley to help companies like Apple, Netscape, HP, Adobe, and Google build their brands.
    In 1996 I started Critique, the first magazine about design thinking. After five years it failed. I then launched Neutron, a design think tank focused on brand-building processes that drive organizational change. It succeeded. I later merged Neutron with Liquid Agency, and here I am. As Director of CEO Branding at Liquid, I consult with leaders and execs of some of the world’s most exciting companies, while writing and speaking on the topics of business strategy, design, and innovation.
    When I’m not traveling for business, I spend my time in California and France. My wife and I have a 400-year-old stone cottage in the Dordogne, where we go in hopes of someday speaking French. You can read about our misadventures in Beginning French, written under the pen name les Américains. I won’t be quitting my day job anytime soon.
