LANGUAGE OF TRUST
Trust directly impacts a business’s bottom line. But more importantly, it’s the key to unlocking one’s purpose, resilience, and growth. Trust is a practice that offers transformation—and this book shows you how.
You will learn guidelines for creating authentic, trusting relationships with your stakeholders to communicate successfully in any language. You will realize that the more people can feel seen and understood, the more you will open up your organization and yourself to the world.
You’ll learn how to grow in business and life by nourishing relationships and communicating in ways that resonate personally. And once you learn about developing an organizational identity, cultivating trust with employees, and prioritizing time for personal development, you’ll get to do the work for yourself.
As a leader, your ability to cultivate trust – both at work and at home – will have a profound impact on your personal and professional life.
“This book is for anybody who cares about trust, interested in what trust means and what the act of trusting and creating trust calls demands,” explains Ingrid. “Brave trust is trusting when you don’t want to, when you don’t feel like it, and when you’ve learned not to trust. If you are willing to be vulnerably brave with trust, this book is for you.”

"I love the way Christensen retells the first moments of her journey as an Interpreter -- her words pulls in the audience with her genuine kindness and deep desire to help others with her gift in creating trust. Her stories are captivating, authentic but she also intimating reveals something so basic yet heartbreaking -- the inability for people to communicate and to be understood because of language and cultural differences; humans all over the world never having that privilege of being heard if not for Ingrid and people like her. And trust."
