Brené with Charles Feltman on
Trust: Building, Maintaining, and Restoring It
In this episode, I’m talking to Charles Feltman, author of The Thin Book of Trust: An Essential Primer for Building Trust at Work, which is based on his nearly three decades of work with individuals and teams to build, maintain, and restore trust. I have used his definitions of trust and distrust in every book I’ve written, because they are practical and actionable, and, at the same time, deep and meaningful. It was important to me to dig into these definitions and explore how they play out at work, in relationships, and in our everyday lives.
Charles Feltman has been coaching, facilitating and training people who lead others through his company, Insight Coaching, for 27 years, after leading others himself for 15 years. An overarching intention in his work is that his clients express their greatest potential as leaders and as human beings. Today, Charles’ work is concentrated in three areas: coaching individual leaders and leadership teams, designing and delivering leadership development programs, and helping people build strong trust at work. Clients have included leaders and teams in a diverse array of organizations from Fortune 500 corporations to small and midsize companies, NGOs, and government entities worldwide.
Charles is the author of The Thin Book of Trust: An Essential Primer for Building Trust at Work (now out as a second edition), based on three decades of experience working with individuals and teams to build, maintain and, when necessary, restore trust. In addition to being read by thousands of leaders around the world, The Thin Book of Trust has been used by thousands of coaches, facilitators, trainers, and OD/HR/L&D professionals as a basis for work with their clients. Charles is also a partner in delivering the Trust at Work Certification Program, training others to use his trust-building framework.
