Tailwind program for leaders


How to increase trust in your company?

71% of employees in companies do not trust their boss. Employee engagement is at an all time low with 25%. Most people don’t like their place of work and in return managers try to have some grip by installing ever more instruments of control like performance dashboards. With little success. 

The Grip on trust Tailwind program provides knowledge and tools to influence and change these dynamics. 

Tailwind is a concept from the world of sailing. This is when the wind comes from behind and blows into the direction you want to go. It’s the most relaxed phase of a sailing trip. You can deploy all the sails you have and develop a nice speed. It also gives the skipper the time to think of the next moves; where do you need to go? How will you get there? Is it a straight line or do you need to tack (change course) a couple of times? 


The Grip on trust Tailwind program helps (HR) leaders how to get a grip on trust, how to plot a course to get it in place, prepare when to tack and make an average working week (almost) as exciting as a sailing trip for all who’s on board. 


How do we do this?
