Dennis and Michelle Reina

About the authors

Dennis S Reina, PhD and Michelle L Reina, PhD, are pioneering, preeminent experts on building and rebuilding trust to drive business results.

Sought-after as thought leaders for 20 years, they co-founded the Reina Trust Building Institute, a global enterprise specialising in measuring, developing, and restoring workplace trust. Their work has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg’s Business Week, Harvard Management Update, Time, USA Today and on national radio and TV, including CNN and CNBC.

Most important, perhaps, given these volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous times, their work in helping leaders and organisations rebuild trust is profoundly timely and relevant.
