    Become a Ripple Effect Leader: Building High-Trust Teams in a Low-Trust World

    Chris Rollins

    CEO, Ripple Effect Leadership


    Did you know that 4 in 5 people are unwilling to work with someone who disagrees with their point of view?

    Creating a culture of safety, where individuals feel seen, heard, and accepted, is essential for building trust and fostering positive relationships in the workplace. This culture is driven by leaders taking proactive steps to connect with their teams and create a space where open and honest communication can flourish, ultimately leading to better teamwork, higher engagement, and more satisfying work environments.

    At a time when trust is low, polarization is high, and fear of cancel culture is growing, leaders have to do more than ever before to build team cultures where people feel safe and can communicate and collaborate effectively.

    In this keynote, Chris Rollins, a highly sought-after global speaker and leadership coach, will share his trademark “Ripple Effect Leadership” framework and proven strategies for becoming a high-trust leader.

    By combining his powerful personal story and experiences with hard-hitting data, you’ll leave feeling empowered, inspired and equipped to build teams that are more engaged, productive, energized and less burned out.

    About the Speaker:

    Chris Rollins skyrocketed through corporate America to become SVP of Organizational Development for a top digital marketing research firm by the age of 30. Now he’s sharing his message and lessons learned with thousands of leaders from the mailroom to the boardroom at organizations across the world. His client roster includes Walmart, Oracle, SAP, Raytheon, Clorox, YouTube and many others.

    Chris helps organizations develop Ripple Effect Leaders who create more inclusive, high-trust, human-centered workforces that move forward faster and leave no one behind.

    He is also the founder of QueeHR, a global online community of over 750 LGBTQ+ and ally changemakers in the HR & DEI space.

    A native New Yorker, Chris now lives in Tampa, FL with his partner and rescue pup where he serves on the board of the LGBT Chamber of Commerce.
