Read an Excerpt

A Slice of Trust depicts the purposeful balance of choice, analysis, emotion, judgment and personal courage required for exercising trust. As you join Simon the Pieman on his adventures in trust, I invite you to reflect on how you have extended trust in your organization, your relationships, your family, your world. After all, the most important story is your story. It’s a story that you create every day as you explore opportunities for trust. And it’s a story whose telling is brought to life every time you extend your trust to another, one slice at a time.
