Trust is the glue that holds an organization together. It turns secrecy into transparency, micromanagement into empowerment, and conflict into creativity. With it, a tiny company like John Deere grew into a worldwide leader. Without it, a giant corporation like Enron toppled.

A truly wise, incredibly experienced and successful - yet humble - leader, seems to be a rare find. Joel is all these things and more. I saw him speak on this subject prior to the books release and he his presentation was outstanding we were all in awe. Because he lived, and lives still, precisely what he preaches as what works best when you want to go down deep to the core of the principles behind a thriving organization and its leadership.
I only wish you got to hear his voice on the audio version - finely narrated though it is. Enjoy!
