Trust & Teamwork

Trust & Teamwork

Lessons from 9/11

In a world where trust is under attack from all quarters and where real teamwork does not appear to be the norm Michael Hingson's existence and life relies on both just to survive. Today, more than ever, with the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic we have so many mixed messages that we do not know who or what to trust. "Who is really on our team?" Mr. Hingson, who happens to be blind, uses a guide dog who "he trusts with his life every day and who puts her life in his hands in return". He is an expert on Trust and Teamwork not only because of the bonds that he has built with eight guide dogs over 56 years, but also because he has had to create teams with humans to accomplish tasks that made him and them successful. Michael shares lessons with his audiences on teambuilding skills through being open to trust and creating a desire on the part of all people involved to get the job done.
