Publisher's Summary

From Stephen R. Covey's eldest son comes a revolutionary new path towards productivity and satisfaction. 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.

    "made it"

    struggled to finish, never so happy to get to the end of a book. I would go with the shorter version of the book

    "Slow start but excellent finish!"

    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"

    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

    "Added a great perspective to my experiences"
    What made the experience of listening to The Speed of Trust the most enjoyable?

    I learned a lot by reflecting on my past and experiences through the lens or framework this book has to offer.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "A Little Long, But a Good Read"

    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.

    "Good book but repeats itself unnecessarily."

    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.

    "Good info, but way too long"

    The concepts are solid but could have easily been thoroughly covered in 1/3 the length.

    "Content was great"

    But delivery a bit monotone making concentration difficult. May be better served with a print version. At the very least try bite size portions.

    "A great awakening to an often overlooked virtue"

    This will need several listens to take it all in! Examining how expensive lack of trust is, and how prevalent , gives good ground to reflect personally how many areas in our life are affected. I like the " taxes vs dividend analogy. Also, the many examples of how quickly trust can be regained if damaged .
