In his book, The Speed of Trust
, Stephen M R Covey emphasizes that trust is a critical leadership competency for the new global economy and that organizations can leverage trust to get things done more quickly, save money, and be more successful. In this session, you’ll be introduced to Covey’s Speed of Trust concept and its key principles. You’ll learn how Speed of Trust training is being used to develop leaders at DoD. And you’ll get to try out some activities that will give you a whole new perspective on the power of trust.
