Presenter: Betsy Buckley, CEO of What Matters

Life today — as professionals, family members and community leaders — requires us to develop ways to create trusted relationships with those around us. Many of us grew up believing trust could be earned by being reliable or credible. However, recent research by Charles Green, author of The Trusted Advisor, identified that the most critical ingredient of trust comes from a focus on others.

During our session together, Betsy will help us:

•Learn and apply the "Trust Equation" to two different situations in our life
•Explore ways to discover what really matters to those whose trust we need
•Change our language to stimulate higher levels of trust, and
•Incorporate trust into our daily, monthly and annual planning.

Betsy Buckley has founded three companies  and successfully sold two. Before realizing at age 50 that she had all the characteristics of a business owner, Betsy had separate careers involving executive leadership roles in such distinctly different areas as criminal justice, economic development, finance and PR. Each of these ended in what Buckley thought at the time was a glass ceiling, but later learned was simply a path to growth.

Buckley, who holds an advanced executive coaching certification from the Hudson Institute, founded What Matters in 1997, where she helps individuals and groups become competent, confident rainmakers.

In addition to her business life, Buckley has long been a civic volunteer and an active board member, including for the Minnesota State Chamber of Commerce; trustee at her undergrad alma mater, St. Norbert College, and member of the Board of Governors of the Minneapolis Club.
