David Horsager: TEDxUMN


Dave Horsager surveys the latest headlines to reveal our preoccupation with trust: Can we trust our doctors? Elected officials? Other countries? It’s pretty clear, David observes, that most people feel “everything is built on trust,” but when organizations and individuals are faced with cultivating it, many discover that trust is much more complex than most of us realize.

David breaks down the hidden costs and benefits of increasing trust while zooming in on the key ingredients needed to foster it and debunking some common misconceptions, as well. “We can sometimes think it takes a long time to build trust,” he comments. “But in a crisis like 9/11, strangers trusted each other in moments.”
