In 2001 the business world was rocked by news of the Enron scandal. Over the following decade many other company scandals have come to light, further eroding trust within companies and about big business in general.
In response to this flurry of scandals, business writers began to publish articles and books about the issue of trust in the workplace and between companies. Among those authors was Stephen M. R. Covey, son of the late Stephen R. Covey. In 2006 he released The Speed of Trust, focusing on how trust between individuals and companies can speed up the way we do business. This was followed up in 2012 by Smart Trust, with a focus on how trust affects our careers.
Now in late 2013 Covey has released an extensive update to Smart Trust, with a focus on the importance of trust in developing strong leaders. With this latest update, we’ve invited Stephen back to bring us up to date on his latest findings in this important area of trust in the workplace.
Please join us on December 12th for The Defining Skill that Transforms Managers into Leaders with Stephen M. R. Covey. With a whole new generation of workers moving up through the ranks, it’s more important than ever to make sure that trust practices are part of their training.
