Publisher's Summary

This audibook is read by the author, with a forward read by Joe Navarro. Robin Dreeke is a 28-year veteran of federal service, including the United States Naval Academy and the United States Marine Corps. He served most recently as a senior agent in the FBI, with 20 years of experience. He was, until recently, the head of the Counterintelligence Behavioral Analysis Program, where his primary mission was to thwart the efforts of foreign spies and to recruit American spies. His core approach in this mission was to inspire reasonable, well-founded trust among people who could provide valuable information.

The Code of Trust is based on the system Dreeke devised, tested, and implemented during years of fieldwork at the highest levels of national security. Applying his system first to himself, he rose up through federal law enforcement and then taught his system to law enforcement and military officials throughout the country, and later to private-sector clients. The Code of Trust has since elevated executives to leadership and changed the culture of entire companies, making them happier and more productive as morale soared.

Inspiring trust is not a trick, nor is it an arcane art. It's an important, character-building endeavor that requires only a sincere desire to be helpful and sensitive and the ambition to be more successful at work and at home. The Code of Trust is based on five simple principles:

1. Suspend Your Ego 2. Be Nonjudgmental 3. Honor Reason 4. Validate Others 5. Be Generous

To be successful with this system, a listener needs only the willingness to spend eight to 10 hours learning a method of trust-building that took Robin Dreeke almost a lifetime to create.

A book that will change your life, if you want to!

Would you listen to The Code of Trust again? Why?

I am actually looking forward to listening again. Learning the Code of Trust and hearing the lessons again will only re-enforce my grasp on the Code.

What other book might you compare The Code of Trust to and why?

Honestly, I have never read anything like it

Have you listened to any of Robin Dreeke’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have had the pleasure of seeing Robin present a class in person. He is a very good presenter.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES

Any additional comments?

I only hope my wife and my kids listen to this book. I know what I have learned will help them too!

Powerful lesson

It's a treat when the author narrates their own book; the lesson takes on greater depth and understanding. I didn't want the book to end.
Great tools for our modern society. Narration, cadence, and format deserves a BRAVO ZULU!

Great book.

Very interesting content. This should be recommended reading for all leaders, managers, and businesses practitioners.

Leadership is a social contract and the system only works if trust is both given and received. This book tells you how to build it. Intelligent Disobedience by Ira Chaleff tells you how to maintain it from a subordinate's perspective and Patrick Lencioni's Five Dysfunctions of a Team tells you how to maintain it from the boardroom.

The performance was good but there are some noticeable hiccups. I would also like to see some companion documents for a few key pages.

The author is brilliant and you will enjoy the audiobook.

Code of Trust = Code of people

What did you love best about The Code of Trust?

Extremely obvious fundamental truths about people. When I think about Yoda or Obi-one they used the simple techniques of the code of trust. The five rules are about how you control yourself to make the interaction about the other person. The four rules of engagement are about making people comfortable. I am currently interview for a new career, which is very stressful, and at the end of day people make their decision in the first 1-2 minutes if you are a good fit. A good fit is simple "I trust you". In a non-manipulate manner the interview is about the hiring manager answering one simple question "does the candidate help them achieve their end goals and means goals?" Thanks Robin for helping me eliminate the stress to land the career of my dreams!

solid for any organizational leadership program <br />

a great book for any leadership group starting business or anybody who just wants to be a better leader and their home or workplace. the things that Robin brings up need probably further flushing out but it's a great primer to start thinking about trust as the ultimate currency. and how to start correcting your own bad Behaviour and just become more trustworthy in general.
