NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Crisis and reputational risk strategist and leadership coach Davia Temin has been honored by Trust Across America-Trust Around the World with its 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award. The award recognizes leadership in advancing organizational trust on a global level; Temin has been named one of the group's "Top Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business" for five consecutive years.
"Truth is in short supply these days, and so public trust in our institutions, businesses, and leaders is taking a nosedive," says Davia Temin, CEO of Temin and Company, a management consultancy focused on marketing strategy, crisis and reputation management, and leadership coaching that she founded 20 years ago.
"When you look closely at what triggers crises in organizations, you often see that there is a major leadership oversight or blind spot that has allowed the crisis to exist in the first place. More often than not, these blind spots come from trusting the wrong sources, data, or people. Misplaced trust is a clear precursor to trouble.
"In today's climate, it becomes even more important for organizations to build and preserve a reputation of trust. Smart businesses distinguish themselves by their trustworthy behavior toward customers, employees, partners, and the public. And the same is true for leaders."
Temin works with global corporations, professional services firms, universities, and NGOs on reputational risk, crisis planning and management, marketing and media strategy, thought leadership, and leadership coaching. She also advises major corporations on women's leadership issues.
A contributor to Forbes on "Reputation Matters," Temin writes extensively on how organizations and leaders can create, enhance, and save their reputations, as well as rebuild trust after crisis. Her most recent piece is "10 Leadership Blind Spots That Can Trigger Business Crises in 2017." In addition, she writes for The Huffington Post and American Banker.

A popular public speaker, Temin appears regularly on television and radio, and in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, and The Washington Post. She served for nine years as the First Vice Chair of the Board of Girl Scouts of the USA, is currently Chair of the Board of Video Volunteers, and a member of the Board of Managers of Swarthmore College. Temin is also on the advisory boards of the Knight-Bagehot Fellowship at Columbia Journalism School and ProPublica, and on Harvard Kennedy School's Women's Leadership Board.
Trust Across America is a global initiative launched shortly after the 2008 financial crisis. Selection criteria for the "Top Thought Leaders" include transparency, long-term reputation preservation, and those "whose work contributes to elevating societal trust."
