The Trusted Leader
by Robert Galford and Anne Seibold Drapeau

The Trusted LeaderA business book for executives who want to build trust within their organizations.

The Urgent Need for Trust
Enron, Global Crossing, Adelphia Communications, Tyco, WorldCom... As the headlines remind us, trust is the hot-button issue for investors, managers, workers, and consumers. More than ever before, the success of an organization depends on leadership that fosters strong connections across teams and among bosses, colleagues, and subordinates.

Companies are in urgent need of trusted leaders, but how can managers meet that need?

"Be trustworthy," is the short, logical answer, of course. But being trustworthy and building trust in an organization are not one and the same thing. The former is an inherent part of a person; the latter requires developed talent and considerable skill.
