By Stephen M. R. Covey, with Rebecca R. Merrill
From Stephen R. Covey’s eldest son comes a revolutionary new path toward productivity and satisfaction. Trust, he says, is the very basis of the new global economy, and he shows how trust – and the speed at which it is established with clients, employees and constituents – is the essential ingredient for any high-performance, successful organization.
For business leaders and public figures in any arena, The Speed of Trust offers an unprecedented and eminently practical look at exactly how trust functions in our every transaction and relationship – from the most personal to the broadest, most indirect interaction – and how to establish trust immediately so that you and your organization can forego the time-killing, bureaucratic check-and-balance processes so often deployed in lieu of actual trust. 384 pages.
