Where there is Trust…

Our theme this year at PCI is around building TRUST.

Let’s take a step back and consider… why?

Why trust?

In service of what?

Well, then…

What I’d suggest is… 

where there is trust…

where there is high trust…

this is an environment, 

this is a culture 

where we can do our very best work… 

Together.

Where there is trust…

where there is high trust…

we can bring our authentic selves to work each day. 

Because when there is trust and respect, 

we are motivated…

we are inspired…

to do our very best at work each day.

We can work together. 

We can get things done.

Where there is trust…

where there is high trust…

we can celebrate the uniqueness that is inside each of us

not some of us 

but ALL of us.

Where there is trust…

where there is high trust…

we can appreciate the differences in…

our perspectives,

our backgrounds, 

our ages, 

our levels of experience, 

our gender,

our sexual orientation,

our race, 

the color of our skin

our ethnicity,

our backgrounds.

We are not all the same.

Each of us is perfectly unique. 

And special.

And the combination of all these differences makes us so much stronger…   

Where there is trust…

where there is high trust… 

together we can explore and discover

our purpose

which at PCI is to inspire dreams and transform lives.

Where there is trust…

where there is high trust…

there is no need to pretend,

no need to cover things up.

We can keep it real!

We can admit mistakes.

Because we know that reflecting on and learning from our mistakes 

is how we ALL get better.

Which is to say…

where there is trust…

where there is high trust…

THIS is an environment in which we can experiment… 

we can explore

new approaches, 

new ideas, 

new strategies.

Because we know we will win 

or we will…

learn

Which is to say where there is trust…

where there is high trust…

this is an environment  

where we can unlock the incredible human potential 

that is inside each of us

which is what life and living is all about.

Which is to say… 

Trust is the One thing that changes everything.*
