About the In Trust podcast
Hosted by Spotlight Trust™ Co-founders Lisa Lambert and Rick Kitagawa, In Trust episodes has two formats. The first is a conversation between the hosts that are a mix of fun stories and thoughtful deep-dives all around a single topic. These topic-centered episodes focus on the various elements and skills that go into building trust. Additionally, they often end with a practical challenge for the audience to build Trust-Centered skills.
Additionally, In Trust also has interview episodes with leaders from all sorts of different fields. From government to public health to the entertainment industry, the common thread between guests is that they’re all trusted leaders in their communities. In these interviews, we’ll have them tell their stories in their own words, and look into how trust has helped them achieve the change they’ve been seeking to make.
How do you untangle big, messy decisions?
How do you make collective decisions within organizations that everyone can get behind, even if they disagree?
Who better to ask these questions to then Michelle Florendo, a decision engineer and award-winning coach for type-A professionals (who also happens to host a podcast called Ask a Decision Engineer). Michelle uses a blend of decision engineering, design thinking, and lean startup principles to help her clients achieve their goals. Michelle has guest-taught on career decision making in Stanford’s famous Design Your Life course, was a founding member of the Forbes Coaches Council, coaches for Startup Parent, and teaches a course on decision making for Stanford Continuing Studies.
In our conversation we talked about the relationship between trust and decision making, why decision making is less like shooting an arrow and more like steering a ship, and what defines a quality decision.
If you’re looking to make better quality decisions as a leader and with your organization, then you won’t want to miss this episode of In Trust.
