Trust: It’s the one thing that is common to every individual, relationship, team, family, organization, nation, economy, and civilization throughout the world— one thing which, if removed, could destroy the most powerful government, the most successful business, the strongest character, and the deepest love.
On the other hand, if developed and leveraged, trust has the potential to create unparalleled success and prosperity in every dimension of life. Yet it is the least understood, the most neglected, and most underestimated possibility of our time. Trust impacts us 24/7, 365 days a year.
Like the proverbial ripple in the pond, The Speed of Trust begins within each of us personally, continues in to our relationships, expands into our organizations and ultimately encompasses our global society. Covey reveals the thirteen behaviors common to high-trust leaders throughout the world and demonstrates actionable insights that will enable listeners to shift their behavior to increase trust in all of their critical relationships. Covey convincingly makes the case that trust is a measurable accelerator to performance and that when trust goes up, speed also goes up while cost comes down, and producing what Covey calls a “trust dividend.”
