E21 The Future of Trust Building with Brian Mohr

In this episode of The Future of Work: Water Cooler Conversations, Jen and Kyle are joined by Brian Mohr, the co-founder of anthym. Brian shares how his early business experiences including being one of the first employees at jobing.com shaped his belief around what makes a high performing team. He shared the two types of trust he has observed people on teams have and how to increase levels of trust within an organization.

He also shared updates on his latest venture, anthym. A unique trust building platform for teams to connect and share lived experiences through music. Brian believes meaningful team building activities for teams will be vital to the success of organizations as we move forward.

Anyone who is a part of a team, a manager or in a leadership role should listen to this jam packed episode. Brian discusses what he has seen teams and organizations do well and not so well. He also breaks down the two types of trust within a team and the role they both play. This is a thought provoking episode as we explore how to replace the organic “water cooler” moments that used to happen organically in the office with more intentional and trust building activities to ensure trust remains as we are not physically together each day.

Kyle McIntosh

With a background in marketing, in various for profit and not for profit companies, Kyle McIntosh wondered, “How can I pair the passion and commitment to community progress of a non-profit with the sustainability and reach of a for profit company?” From this question and perspective a mission evolved to tear down the false distinction between the two sectors and to promote companies with Conscious Capitalism® business models through MAC6.

Kyle is the President and Creative Excitant of MAC6.  Day to day, his main operational role is on the “spaces” side of the business, focusing on creating thriving communities in the commercial office buildings, the co-working space, and the co-manufacturing space.  The other role that he plays is that of EOS implementer, working with clients to bring the Entrepreneurial Operating System, from the book Traction® to their businesses.  Additionally, he sits on the boards of Conscious Capitalism Arizona, telling the stories of good businesses in Arizona, and The Tempe Chamber of Commerce, sustaining Tempe’s quality of life and keeping our community and economy vibrant.

Kyle loves Arizona and wants to see us all collectively find great success based on the awesome things that are happening here every day.
