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.
"This book by leadership expert Covey is a welcome guide to nurturing trust in our professional and personal lives....The author effectively reminds us that there's plenty of room for improvement on this virtue....Covey's down-to-earth approach and disarming personal stories go a long way to establish rapport with his listener." (Publisher's Weekly)

Son of Covey carries on the legacy...
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! :-) )

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I was very disappointed by how little the audio version covered. If I had time to sit around for hours reading a (free) web site, then I would do that. The whole reason I bought the audio book was so that I could listen to it (over and over again for years?), while I did other things. The superficial paucity of information included in the Audible version was not worth $3.00, let alone more!

Could we at least buy the full version? I don't this it goes deep enough
