A global authority on trust, leadership, culture, and author of “The Speed of Trust”, Stephen Covey states that a high trust leader is an individual who has unquestionably strong personal credibility, can create and grow trust with others interpersonally, and who is then able to extend that trust organizationally. Trust is the new currency in today’s connected, collaborative world. When trust is high, communication, creativity, and engagement improve, productivity speeds up, and costs decrease. Experience this course through a collaborative journey with peers and colleagues to become competent in using the framework, language, and behaviors that lead to high-trust teams and organizations.
