    Why trust?

    Trust is the most valuable asset of our time. The In Trust podcast shares stories and insights to help you develop the mission-critical leadership skills to earn, extend, strengthen, and restore trust.

    Research has shown that more trusted companies are more profitable companies. Now, with more teams going remote and business models breaking down, trust is needed more than ever. Trust is the glue, lubricant, and accelerant to human connection, and human connection is the basis of all business.

    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.
