Become a Trustblazer
The world faces a crisis of trust and it is incumbent on Trailblazers to step up and become Trustblazers! That was the message from Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff to his Salesforce family as he kicked off his Dreamforce conference keynote address But what does he mean by Trustblazer, and how can it make a difference?
Trustblazer is a one-step-ahead evolved aspect of Trailblazer, where a business looks at the current trust crisis and chooses to tackle it head-on. And since business is the apt platform for making a difference, Benioff shared a look at the Trusted Enterprise playbook as a way for businesses can go beyond the trust crisis and become a Trustblazer.
Watch the full Trusted Enterprise episode on Salesforce+. The process has five key points which are as follows:
When a business is faced with an emergency, it needs to act in accordance with its values. 89% of customers say that how companies behave during these times demonstrates their trustworthiness so businesses should reflect what makes them unique and trustworthy through actions if they want consumers or clients alike to have faith in them as a trusted partner.
- Customer First
In an era of direct, trusted relationships with customers it’s no surprise that being a Trusted Enterprise means treating them like gold and being customer first.
- Digital Headquarter
In an increasingly digital world, the importance of having a strong and up-to-date digital headquarter cannot be understated.
- Health and Safety
Putting health and safety first is the Trusted Enterprise way. Salesforce’s safety protocols are a shining example of how to put health and safety first. Without them, Dreamforce in-person would not have been possible this year as well!
In the Trusted Enterprise playbook, it is imperative that you do good for our planet. every company needs to pay attention and join efforts towards limiting its carbon footprint and join the “Race to Zero,” where more companies commit to 1.5° Celsius science-based targets.
Sustainability Cloud 2.0
Sustainability Cloud 2.0 was one of the significant parts of the event launches to encourage customers to reach Net Zero with ease. Salesforce is teaming up with 1T.org and Global Citizen to plant 100 Million trees by 2030 in a partnership that will revolutionize how we think about environmentalism forevermore.
The Gold medal mindset
How do Olympic athletes and the elite in their sports get to be so good? Salesforce’s CMO Sarah Franklin found out from gold medalist Aly Raisman and Blake Leeper
Aly Raisman, a USA Olympic gymnast turned her own motto into reality. “Practice makes perfect” was not just something that she said; it became the driving force behind every aspect of Aly’s life. Not only did she practice every day and record herself so if there were any mistakes or deviations from technique could be seen but also worked on slowly improving them through repetition until they were spotless!
The Paralympian, Blake Leeper is a prime example of how to be successful in life. He teaches us that when we are faced with tough challenges and hard times don’t ask “why me?” ask ‘why not me?’.” His struggle taught him that it was all about how you viewed your challenges. If we are able to see them for what they can do instead of being limited by the obstacles, then anything becomes possible!
