Written from his informed perspective as the former CEO of a $100 million enterprise, Covey draws on his pragmatic experience growing the Covey Leadership Center (founded by his father, Dr. Stephen R. Covey) from a shareholder value of less than $3 million to a value of more than $160 million.
Covey articulates why trust has become the key leadership competency of the new global economy. He eloquently informs readers of how to inspire lasting trust in their personal and professional relationships, and in so doing to create unparalleled success and sustainable prosperity in every dimension of life. He shows business, government, and education leaders how to quickly and permanently gain the trust of clients, coworkers, partners, and constituents. The author convincingly makes the case that trust is a measurable performance accelerator, and that when trust goes up, speed also goes up while cost comes down, producing what Covey calls a "trust dividend".
This powerful new audiobook reveals the 13 behaviors common to high-trust leaders throughout the world and demonstrates actionable insights that will enable you to increase and inspire trust in your important relationships.

He ran the company his Dad founded (Covey Leadership Center) up until they merged with FranklinQuest.
Now, in this book, Stephen M. R. Covey explores in greater depth the foundation of the character ethic so eloquently taught by his father: trust.
This book will give you new insights on how important trust really is, and just how much so many people and organizations have taken it for granted.
(And unlike his father, his narration isn't in monotone! :-) )
A must read for anyone who thinks their a leader. This book has me reflecting on all the relationships I have destroyed in my life and what I can do to make sure I don't cause more destruction in the future. It's going on my read once a year list.

No but he is great in this book
NO WAY, too much to digest in one sitting.
I would highly recommend this book to any leader who REALLY wants to be a better leader.
It was good as a "bird's eye view" of the book.
Practicality without superficiality in his content.
i love biographies
what is really unique about Covey is ; how he put human relation and relations into equations. he is a pioneer , that is for sure !
I would like to have seen more in depth inforamtion in the book. He does extend an offer to go to the website but i would have rather had the detailed information in the book. Everything in the book is true and helpful.
I use quotes from this book regularly. I checked it out from the library and decided I wanted it in my own library so I purchased it.
The insight and illumination of common but missed facts helps me to improve myself while I better support and encourage others.
