Join us for a morning of learning, networking and a mastermind. CEO Clubs of America's Guest Speaker Paul J. Zak. Zak, is the founding Director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies and an internationally recognized expert on the neuroscience of high engagement. In 2004, his lab was the first to discover the connection between Oxycontin, a “feel good” chemical produced by the brain, and the experience of trusting others and being deemed trustworthy in return. “Think of Oxycontin as the biological basis for the Golden Rule,” Zak explains. “Trust is part of our evolutionary old repertoire of social behaviors.” 

Zak's talk today will address companies twisting themselves into knots to empower and challenge their employees. They’re anxious about the sad state of engagement, and rightly so, given the value they’re losing. In Trust Factor: The Science of Creating High-Performance Companies he shows that building a culture of trust is what makes a meaningful difference. Employees in high-trust organizations are more productive, have more energy at work, collaborate better with their colleagues, and stay with their employers longer than people working at low-trust companies. They also suffer less chronic stress and are happier with their lives, and these factors fuel stronger performance.  This talk will explain how to measure and manage your company's culture for high-trust and high-performance.
