Stephen M.R. Covey shows how trust--and the speed at which it is established with clients and, employees--is essential to a successful organization. With nearly 750,000 copies in print, this instant classic shows that establishing trust is "the one thing that changes everything" (Marcus Buckingham, coauthor of Now, Discover Your Strengths) in both business and life. 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.

Review quote

Covey convincingly validates our experience at Dell -- that trust has a bottom-line impact on results and that when trust goes up, speed goes up while costs come down. This principle applies not only in our professional relationships with customers, business partners, and team members but also in our personal relationships, which makes this insightful book all the more valuable."
-- Kevin Rollins, President and CEO, Dell Inc.

Our customer reviews

The Speed of Trust is essential reading for any manager or supervisor. Whatever your business model, strategies or execution plans they will not deliver the desired results without trust on all levels and in all directions. By taking an emotional concept and backing up its importance with hard facts Covey proves how vital trust is at all levels of an organisation. Trust is inherent in every decision we make and whether people are trusted and feel trusted will impact on every process in a business. Every initiative, strategy and performance of day to day business relies completely on trust on all levels and in all directions. Covey gives sound, reasoned advice on how to build trust through behaviours to exhibit and those to avoid. Deep rooted trust will speed up your business, will save you money and will ensure higher level performance. Highly recommendedshow more
