We know that “change happens at the speed of trust” (~Stephen M. R. Covey).
But David Sawyer & David Ehrlichman suggest that it can be fast-tracked. In a recent article called the

The Tactics of Trust in the Standford Social Innovation Review, they suggest a number of strategies for accelerating trust building, including using network briefings at cross-sector meetings:

Network Briefings

“In this exercise, each leader delivers a three-minute presentation, followed by a two-minute question-and-answer session. Leaders should discuss the main issue that concerns them, efforts that are under way to deal with the issue, and the obstacles to success that they face. To keep participants’ energy levels high, organizers should schedule sets of four to six presentations at various points during the day. By the end of these briefings, participants will understand the range of issues that affect a system, why those issues matter, and where the network might be able to intervene constructively.”
