« Adam Geller on Two Steps Needed to Build Relationship Trust »

In Chapter 14 of 22 in his 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, education technology entrepreneur Adam Geller answers "How Do You Establish Trust When Building Relationships?" Geller finds trust building is a two-step process. First, he assesses someone's trustworthiness from a capabilities standpoint of what they have compared to what the relationship requires. Second, he performs diligence on an individual to gather data and make a more informed decision on whether or not to trust them. He shares his experiences building trust with students as an 8th and 9th grade science teacher. Adam Geller is founder and CEO of Edthena, a video platform enabling online teacher coaching, peer review, and group learning. He is a recent Education Ventures fellow at the Kauffman Foundation and the founder of Teach For Us, a network connecting Teach for America corps members and alumni. He earned a BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a MA from the University of Missouri-Saint Louis.
