The Speed of Trust: The One Thing that Changes Everything

A book review

I recently finished the book “The Speed of Trust: The One Thing that Changes Everything” by Stephen M. R. Covey and found it highly informative and educational. It makes a strong case for the powerful impact of trust in both business in life. My more detailed review is on goodreads.

One thing that struck me as I read is how few of the 13 Behaviors of High Trust politicians follow. They rarely: talk straight, create transparency, deliver results, listen first, or keep commitments. In fact, politicians are encouraged to never admit their mistakes. It is no wonder why there is a trust issue both in the US and abroad.

I think any aspiring person in politics should pick up this book and seriously consider the teachings. There is a high risk of failure by breaking the current mold and embracing the 4 cores and 13 behaviors outlined, but if one were to succeed, their limit is only their capabilities.

For that matter, I recommend this book to everyone as mentioned in the goodreads review.
