To our friends and colleagues:

It is with great pleasure that we announce that Anne Seibold Drapeau has joined the Center for Leading Organizations as Managing Partner. Annie was Rob’s co-author on The Trusted Leader, and has spent the last several years as a corporate executive.

The Center for Leading Organizations provides highly-tailored advice, education and facilitation to firms (and their leaders) in building strategic, organizational and individual trust. Since the time of the publication of The Trusted Leader several years ago, we have continued to see clear confirmation that no leader or leadership group can be successful without working on those three levels of trust. But our work isn’t strictly about trust. It is about putting in place the enablers of trust. The right organization structure, the right leadership skills, the right processes.

Sometimes, it’s working on a leadership offsite. Other times it’s designing and delivering an executive session, or in providing quiet, one-on-one advice to a senior executive. More often than not, it is a combination of the above.

We have been toiling in this field for many years. You know that from knowing us, and from knowing our backgrounds. It was simply time to put it together in a single place, a center, for leading organizations, and that’s what we have done. We invite you to call on us, say hello to us, tell us what you are up to, and of course, let us know if we can help you as you build trust on three levels.

In these most recent weeks and months, we have been working with clients in addressing a set of far more serious marketplace, organizational and individual challenges. These times are certainly defining moments for leaders. It is when trust is built, and if we are not careful, it is when trust is destroyed. You can read some of their stories and some of our thoughts here. We feel privileged to be a resource to these clients, and wish you the best in your work.


Rob Galford and Annie Drapeau
