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.

always a great resource. The Speed of Trust is so uplifting and refreshing. It gives me hope for a better work environment, family life and a better world. I hope that you take the opportunity to read it and put the principles in it into action. you will be mystified at the difference it will make.
This books tells about a highly important equity I did not learn at the business school.
I liked the real life examples and how the author connected business behavior and decision with trust.
Result help build trust. That is so real, even people dislike you, the trust you because of the result you can bring.

The first 1/3 of the book harped on the importance of trust. After a while I found myself saying... alright, I get it, trust is extremely important. But once I got through that section of the book I quickly became overwhelmingly impressed with the ideas, stories, and applications offered. It was well worth the time spent and I'm very happy I completed this book. I will likely go back to it from time to time when I need guidance with my trust issues.
Great thoughts and research with memorable stories
Not by Stephen r but rather his son Stephen MR covey who proves to be a bit worse reader, but a great thinker and teacher in his own right on a highly relevant topic for anyone
I love my family, ultra running, data and cognitive science, and anything technology related
I learned a lot by reflecting on my past and experiences through the lens or framework this book has to offer.
This was a highly recommended book by an instructor at a course I took. I bought the book, but didn't ever seem to find the time to read it. After listening to it, I've picked up the paper copy and browed some sections that I thought were important. Overall, there are some valuable lessons and thinking about what makes teams and organizations works.
I think this is an even more important book than the 7 Habits book written by Covey''s father, which is a required read and re-read in it's own right. It encapsulates the elements that make up a trusted entity (a person, a family, a company, a society), and the behaviors which, when implemented earnestly, will strengthen those elements and improve how they are perceived.
While the concepts are easy to grasp, Mr. Covey reads a little fast,. I would have slowed it down, but it goes on and on for some 65+ chapters. It took me a month to get through this book listening to it in the car on my 20 minutes (each way) commute plus a 4-hour plane ride! Just remember the basic framework: 4 elements, 13 behaviors, 5 waves.
Say something about yourself!
The book could have been massively shorter and I'm a bit upset I kept listening. I noticed there is an abridged version just now, perhaps I should have tried that. If you like repetitive stories pointing to similar morals than you will like this book. This author is an amazing human being but perhaps not the best voice for this book. I feel horrible giving this reviewas it does contain good information, just repetitive and narration issues.
