I used this book as a training guide at my office and it was so well received by the end of the training session that I encouraged our church to use it to help build trust that has been lost through out the years. It has been a myth for so long that trust cannot be regained but it can and it starts with Integrity and Respect. This book is well worth your time and I hope you get out of it more that you expect because I sure did.

This book lays out trust as a tangible, business product. It also identifies 13 behaviors to assist you in reaching your potential. It includes links to Covey's website so you can do indepth analysis of your company and personal trust quotient. A valuable tool to help you and your business get better internally and with customers. The book lays out the topic systematically and with lots of examples. An easy read. I've listened to the CD several times in the car.

PREMISE (The basic concept on which the book is based) While corporate scandals, terrorist threats, office politics, and broken relationships have created low trust on almost every front, the ability to establish, grow, extend, and restore trust is not only vital to our personal and interpersonal well-being; it is the key leadership competency of the new global economy. PURPOSE (The author's objectives for the book) Much has been said about the importance of changing paradigms (paradigm shift) in changing behavior-in other words, changing the way you see will automatically change what you do and the results you get. From a pragmatic standpoint, it is also true that speaking and behaving differently can have an enormous impact on the way you see and the results you get. The very act of serving someone, for example, can quickly cause you to see that person differently. This is a behavior shift-a shift in which our behaviors ultimately bring about a shift in the way we see the world. Similarly, a language shift-the way we talk about things-can create a shift in how we see and how we behave, as well as in how others see us. These three dimensions are interdependent; whenever you effect a change in one dimension, you effect a change in all three. The purpose of this book is to enable you to see, speak, and behave in ways that establish trust, and all three dimensions are vital. . This book will enable you to see trust in an entirely different and exciting way-a way that will open your eyes to the possibilities and enable you to increase trust and the dividends of trust on every level. . It will give you a language to speak about trust; it will enable you to name the underlying issues involved, and it will give you the language to describe those issues and to talk about and resolve them. . Finally, this book will help you develop the behaviors that establish and grow trust. As you learn about these behaviors and recognize the impact when people practice them-and when they don't-you will understand how you can behave in ways that quickly build enduring trust. POINT (The key messages or take-aways) Essential messages include: . There are 4 Cores and 13 Behaviors that serve as tools to establish or restore trust in every context-in organizations (including the family), in the marketplace, and in society. . The main principle of establishing Organizational Trust is alignment-ensuring that all structures and systems within the organization are in harmony with the cores and behaviors. This is what builds trust with internal stakeholders. . The main principle of establishing Market Trust is reputation or brand. It's using the cores and behaviors to create the credibility and behavior that inspires the trust of external stakeholders to the extent they will buy, invest in, and/or recommend your products and services to others. . The main principle of establishing Societal Trust is contribution. It's demonstrating the intent to give back, to be a responsible global citizen, and it is becoming both a social and an economic necessity in our knowledge worker age.

This book by Covey is a super addition to leadership books. It addresses probably the most important aspect of leadership--Trust. Covey writes in such a way that that this book is very readable, interesting, and compelling. I reccommend this book for anyone in leadership: parents, singles, couples; it can be applicable to any area of life, because if a person does not have trust in the one with whom he/she is working, their ability to have growth in their relationship and to solve problems will be greatly hindered and almost impossible to accomplish.

I just picked up this book - mistakenly thinking it was authored by Stephen Covey, rather than his son. However, I am not disappointed. Stephen M. R. Covey brings a fresh style and compelling insights to the issue of trust - one of the things that matters most to us and is talked about the least. The concepts in this book will strengthen relationships in your business, your family and your faith community.

I have read hundreds of books that talk about increasing results in business and life, and this one is at the top. The insider stories alone make this book a must buy. Steven has shown how trust not only impacts our daily lives, but how the power of trust can impact our business and profits. He impregnates this book with success principals that the wealthy employ. I highly recommend you read this book.

Covey and Merrill done a careful well reasoned job in identifying the only real basis for success in business, and life. My own observation is that genuine trust is the magic ingredient for bringing out the best of all human interaction. I agree with the authors' suggestion to stop after reading each chapter and go back and address those steps that will make the biggest difference to the reader's own situation. I am confident that application of these concepts can make a huge difference in all business. Lawrence A Haines - author of 'In the Best Companies - People Are Everything'.

Lots of good insight. However, I felt the book was a little too long in length. Some of the "fluff" could be removed making this an even better read.

The book breaks down exactly how to improve trust. I found the most important lesson from this book to be how trust reduces costs and improves speed in business relationships. Mistrust creates delays, extra work, extra precautions, and all of that increases costs. Great book for business to business sales.

Great Book, the star is for the barnes and noble delivery, May I suggest using Amazon. I ordered this book from BN and paid the upcharge for express shipping (1-3) business days as I needed the book for a work project by a certain time. 6 days later...no book and customer service not responsive at all- they use "fuzzy math" for calculated one to three business days. Thing is I am not 50 miles form the BN distribution center. The book could have walked itself faster than BN can deliver it. This is one of the reasons I switch to Amazon for book as BN became so bad about shipping times and fees a few years ago that I dropped my membership.

Trust does change everything! If you have it, you know it. And, if you don't have it--you know that too. This book will influence both your personal and professional relationships. You will learn solid, important behaviors to build or restore trust. It's one of my favorite books ever and after I share it with others, they always tell me, "it changed my life!" Let it change yours too!
