We are living in the midst of a trust crisis. A recent study reveals that more than two-thirds of the global population has no confidence that current leadership can address their country’s challenges, and seven in ten people worry about fake news being used as a weapon. What is causing this widespread skepticism and fear? And what can we do to resist this deliberate destruction of trust?

Today on the podcast, Sylvia is investigating the pervasive falloff of trust. She shares the highlights of the 2018 Edleman Trust Barometer, discussing the trends around public trust in institutions including government, business and the media. Sylvia also explores what it means to trust a particular entity and the impact of your subconscious mind on your ability to trust.

Sylvia covers the reasons why we increasingly see the world as volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous—and how the resulting decline in trust affects our behavior, level of aggression and desire to control a situation. Listen in for insight on strengthening your sense of inner trust and trustworthiness, leveraging self-care to up-level your ability to trust, and laying a foundation of trust in your communication with others.
