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.

    "Content on point but some terrible audio skips."

    Check chapter 46, minute 4-5. There are other skips also. Otherwise the content is great!

    "Offers some valuable insights - narration lacks"

    Overall, this was an interesting book. There were some valuable insights that I took away. Overall, it seemed overly long, and sometimes like the same things were being said over and over. Also, some of the items seem like common sense packaged as revelation. Lastly, the narrator (the author) did not help the feeling of the book being long - he seemed to drone on at times with little intonation to his voice or narration; it made it hard to concentrate at times on the content.

    Overall good book, but you have to listen to some of the stuff over and over again and go through 12 hours just to collect the insights you otherwise could have gotten in probably half the time.

    "Great information"

    The content of this audiobook was very valuable. This is the only reason I kept listening. The women with the British? Accent was annoying and hard to understand. This book also skipped several times! I've never had another audiobook from audible do that.

    "hard to follow"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I much prefer Stephen R. Covey's style over his son. This book was hard to listen to, for me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    trials of Appollo


    How could the performance have been better?

    different reader


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    great information on succeeding in relationships and maintaining trust.

    "Highly Comprehensive and Valuable"

    Deep dive on the importance of trust in personal and professional relationships. Provides specific behaviors and stories to help listener build, maintain, and rebuild trust.

    Recommend for anyone in business management and entrepreneurs.

    Some of the examples are dated but the overall content is well organized and comprehensive.

    Great to see such a strong book from the late Stephen Covey's son; a fantastic legacy.

    "Franklin Covey"

    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.

    "Trust equity or resources"

    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.

    Best
