Description

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.

Good Information, Hard to Listen to

Covey describes trust as being based on character and competence, where character is required and competence is situational. He uses financial terms as a concrete way to convey the cost of low trust and the benefit of high trust, describing the former as a trust tax and the latter as a trust dividend. The quickest way to make a withdrawal, he insists, is to violate a behavior of character, and the quickest way to make a deposit is to demonstrate a behavior of competence. He goes on to detail seven low trust taxes (redundancy, bureaucracy, politics, disengagement, turnover, churn, and fraud) and seven high trust dividends (increased value, accelerated growth, enhanced motivation, improved collaboration, stronger partnering, better execution, and heightened loyalty).

Covey also outlines what he characterizes as five waves of trust: self-trust, relationship trust, organizational trust, market trust, and societal trust. For each of these waves, he applies the concept of the four cores (integrity, intention, capabilities, and results) and the thirteen behaviors of high-trust leaders (talk straight, demonstrate respect, create transparency, right wrongs, show loyalty, deliver results, get better, confront reality, clarify expectations, practice accountability, listen first, keep commitments, and extend trust). The book includes a multitude of practical applications and pushes the reader to reflect on his or her own behavior.

Despite the fact that I have recommended this book, I do so with some caveats. Although I generally like it when an author reads the book, that was not the case for this one. Covey is a Harvard MBA, but I was astounded at the number of mispronunciations. His reading style has a hesitating tempo to it that comes across as patronizing, and his incessant family examples are over the top. He's a business man, not a family therapist. Those examples got very tiresome. Still, there are nuggets in the book.

Disappointed

I have listened to ~30 audible selections over the past year. Though I had read reviewers' comments concerning poor narration, I never thought a bad narrator could undermine the content of a book so greatly.

Mr. Covey is probably a really nice guy, but is simply a poor reader. The choppy, uneven flow made me wish I would have purchased the book rather than listening to it.

Recommendation: Please listen to the sample audio prior to purchasing. (I will from now on.)

Some good information in there, but is too long

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

This book has some great information. But it could be about 2/3rds shorter.A lot of information is repeated, and I couldnt' finish it.

Outstanding!

This book is a game changer! No other book, or person, has helped me realize that my approach to trust saw it as an illusion I was creating. I had no self trust, and then wondered why people didn't trust me. This bok helped me realize why I must have self -trust, and how I could get it... fast!

This bok will change your life... if you let it!

Very true!

This book was a pleasant surprise. There is much truth to what Covey says in this book, both about how trust changes everything and how to increase your "trust" quotient in life and in the office. It is also interesting how the principles in this book apply to virtually everything in life: Marriage, Church and Family, relationships between nations, etc..... This was recommended by my boss and I'm truly glad I read (or more accurately listened to ) it. Well worth your time!

Better at 1.3x Speed

This was a decent book and series of concepts, which I will have the opportunity to try. However, it screams for and would be better enjoyed with a better tempo. The pace made it difficult to stay engaged.

His thinking and clear wording make one stop and self-evaluate.

No, but it did force me to think and rethink.

Good concept - not a good book

What disappointed you about The Speed of Trust?

While some have commented on not liking Covey's style of narration, I didn't mind that but really disliked the alternative narrator.

The book also seemed very repetitive as if it is trying to fill more pages than it would naturally.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Strongly agreed with and found the concept informative about how big a role trust plays but the shallowness of a lot of the material later on and the other narrator's affected tone made it an unpleasant experience overall.

Excellent ideas to build trust in all relationships

While the very beginning of the book seemed a bit redundant, I appreciated the in depth thoughts and ideas that broke down ways that trust is broken and rebuilt through the entire book. I’m planning on re-reading the book with a highlighter.

Just a religious talk about morale

This isn't a book about how to build trust in business relationships but a lecture by some religious morality preacher. If you loved Sunday school at church you will love this book. For all others is recommend The Trusted Advisor Fieldbook instead!
