Empowering No Fail Trust™ for Leaders.
Trust is the most critical tool that every leader needs to implement in order to lead an organization that can deliver on its brand promise. Lieutenant Colonel Jason Harris created the “7 Steps to No Fail Trust™” as a way to empower executives and employees to create an environment of mutual trust, responsibility and productivity that allows organizations to thrive and exceed goals.
This leadership framework is based on a proven strategy that, by trusting your employees, you empower them to make the right decisions for your organization without requiring senior-level micromanagement. This ultimately leads to higher productivity and achievement. Lt. Col. Harris shares countless examples of how No Fail Trust™ was implemented throughout his military and civilian career to great effect, and the steps your leaders can take today to do the same.
Key takeaways include:
- Leadership understanding how to empower their people.
- Leaders understanding how to create actionable steps to create and build successful teams.
- Team members understanding how to foster trust among the team.
- Learning techniques that allow organizations to react successfully to everchanging and often unexpected conditions and challenges.
Company representative will have the opportunity to provide introduction of your company and share general comment on your company and the industry (up to 5 minutes) during the General Session on Tuesday, January 18th.

The Anticipatory Organization: A Proven Model To Predict Change & Create Extraordinary Results
Based on decades of research and experience applying his Hard Trend methodology to leading companies worldwide, Daniel has identified the missing competency: Anticipation.
With his Anticipatory Organization Model, Burrus enables business leaders to separate Hard Trends from Soft Trends. When you learn to analyze and perceive trends this way, it is possible to tap into what Burrus calls Everyday Innovation, solving challenges faster, and recognizing previously invisible opportunities.
Mastering these capabilities will position your organization to be the disruptor instead of being the disrupted — thus creating competitive advantage and reducing risk.
