With nearly 750,000 copies in print, this instant classic shows that establishing trust is “the one thing that changes everything” (Marcus Buckingham, coauthor of Now, Discover Your Strengths) in both business and life.

Trust, says Stephen M.R. Covey, 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.

About a year ago I began realizing how important trust is in almost every aspect of life and desired to better understand how I could demonstrate trustworthiness. This book confirmed my realization of the importance of trust as Covey repeatedly underlines the necessity of trust in the “new economy.”

Do you wonder why we feel everything is chaotic and in the state of decline? Could the `loss of trust’ be at the heart of what we are experiencing? It is pervasive today; there is distrust of the media; the public (e.g. IRS, DOJ, SEC, schools) and private sector institutions; corporations and financial institutions (e.g. Wall Street); politicians; physicians; police; unions: and the list continues. Symptoms of the breakdown of trust can be found in political gridlock, increasing regulation of corporate and personal activity, class warfare; the breakdown of the family; increased incarceration; increasing concern about our educational system, and much more.

Decent, but there’s better

This was a good book. It makes you see some distrust within yourself, others, organizations, etc. but doesn’t do much in terms of actionable material, or explaining trust itself. A lot of material is repeated, trust makes things faster more efficient, trust makes things faster more efficient, trust makes things faster more efficient, trust makes things faster more efficient, ok, but what EXACTLY are the components of trust? Too long.

Great book if you want to become an amazing leader

I purchased the product at a discounted price in exchange for my fair and unbiased review. I take reviewing products seriously, as I always read other reviews before purchasing any product myself. I rely on honest reviews heavily when making purchases on Amazon. I would also like to note that I only choose to receive products at a discounted price in exchange for my unbiased review if they are products I was already interested in and thinking of purchasing.

Trusted someone based on a gut instinct and been burnt? Read how you can repair and replace that self-trusting person again.

Stephen Covey did it again. There are so many factors that we take for granted and never second guess our approaches. We all become too complacent at several intervals in our life. It is when you stretch yourself to read, research, learn, share and discover the truth about many attributes and actions that must be taken in life. Trust is huge with all of us.

Trust is an issue

I didn’t enjoy hearing the book because it appears that some section were skipping or it appeared to sound like a broken record. (I do not feel that it was the kindle app on the iPad, but maybe the quality of recording).

This is a valuable book for all who are involved in building or repairing relationships. For what I believe is the first time, Covey provides a basis for quantifying the added value or additional costs that high or low trust workplaces experience. In an era when economic concerns seem to focus organizations way too much on technology or methodology inputs at the expense of people and relationships, this book will open many eyes as to potential opportunities. This is not about just being nice or walking around smiling at employees. More work needs to be done to convince accountants and chief financial officers of the importance of relationships and collaboration, but this is an impressive and valuable first step.
