In the riveting style of The Tipping Point, Stephen M. R. Covey uncovers the overlooked and underestimated power of trust in a gripping look into what he calls “the one thing that changes everything.” Groundbreaking and paradigm-shifting, The Speed of Trust demonstrates that trust is a hard-edged, economic driver—a learnable and measurable skill that makes organizations more profitable, people more promotable, and relationships more energizing.

The former CEO of Covey Leadership Center (founded by his father, Dr. Stephen R. Covey), Covey draws on his experience leading a $100 million enterprise to explain how trust can help you create unparalleled success and sustainable prosperity in every dimension of life. He reveals the 13 behaviors common to high-trust leaders and persuasively demonstrates actionable insights that will enable you to increase and inspire trust in all of your important relationships. The Speed of Trust presents a road map to establish trust on every level, build character and competence, enhance credibility, and create leadership that inspires confidence.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 1/28/2017

    " The Speed of Trust is a must-read. It captures the essence of what we need to be successful as humans, as professionals, as parents, as friends. I am living more clearly and compassionately. "

  • 4.666666 out of 54.666666 out of 54.666666 out of 54.666666 out of 54.666666 out of 5 James | 7/29/2016

    " This informative audiobook gave keen insights alongside anecdotes and research to provide a thorough understanding of trust. In addition, it provided tangible strategies that can easily be put into practice in business and personal relationships. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron Mcintyre | 2/14/2014

    " Great followup to 7 Habits. Necessary but not necessarily executed well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete | 2/11/2014

    " I felt immediately at home with reading this book. It touched something deeper within me, reaching down from the intellectual part of my brain to the spiritual side. It allows you to realise that everything we do, every interaction we embark on is base on two principles trust or mistrust. There is a great importance for us to place on trust and this book helped me to identify that no matter the relationship I am creating or building, my trust account must not be in overdraft. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 2/8/2014

    " Everyone should read this with an open mind and a willingness to change. I wish all the leaders in the school district would read and apply it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William | 2/6/2014

    " Covey really hits a lot of different thoughts on this one. Trust in our leaders is at a painstaking low and deservedly so. If you are looking for ways to enhance the Trust that you display to your colleagues/family then I would certainly read this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Doutre | 2/1/2014

    " Had to read this for graduate school. Was pleasantly surprised to enjoy the read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/14/2014

    " So far, this book is amazing - so much to think about. He gives practical ways to learn how to have better relationships of trust. Even though this book was written for "business professionals" the information that he gives is extremely helpful for everyday life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 12/31/2013

    " you can have a good moral code, but your abilty to demonstate that to others could be lacking. this has great input about developing your skills with intention and direction "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marvin | 12/27/2013

    " Very simple and informative. A good guide to building trust, well worth the read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 11/18/2013

    " This is a discussion on trust and it's effect on relationships of all kinds. Everything from trust between individuals and to trust in a company or brand. Very interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 11/17/2013

    " Lots of good advice for professionals today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 10/14/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jared Evans | 9/4/2013

    " Mostly enjoyable and thought provoking. A little boring through parts of the book. I did enjoy reading all of the quotes that are scattered throughout the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Sweetman | 9/2/2013

    " Pretty basic principles. An easy,straight forward read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron White | 8/31/2013

    " Three stars only because the ideas within become repetitive. This book was given to me at a seminar. The underlying concept and tools the book discusses are very good, but they can be conveyed in a much shorter and simpler method than this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kalsoum | 2/27/2013

    " Treat people decently, and they will trust you. Trust is a good thing. It's not exactly rocket science. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 1/15/2013

    " A powerful interpretation of trust as a fundamental personal and professional tool. Important in both contexts is its discussion about establishing trust with oneself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/12/2013

    " Interesting, thought provoking information presented in an easily accessible format. I admit to not being a big fan of Covey. I find the solutions that are proposed oversimplified and superficial but nonetheless there is information worth considering here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ravikumar | 12/24/2012

    " Helped in understanding how we can establish trust with everyone consistently. A Good practice guide "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stanley | 12/21/2012

    " Too short but good info "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/8/2012

    " A better writer than his father... sort of. This was pretty good although the premise is pretty basic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mitch | 10/31/2012

    " The book seems fully of highly useful material; I just wish it was written with more intelligence and less ego. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Foley | 8/26/2012

    " VERY eye opening. It's common sense, but better. it's uncommon sense. Very instructive on how to have higher integrity, be more trustworthy and how to instill trust others. Very pivotal so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Millard | 3/9/2012

    " As always Stephen Covey give his audience information for contemplation. I took many helpful hints from this book. As well it helped validate many of my own thoughts and feelings. Good for anyone who is into growing themselves! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Robinson | 1/9/2012

    " Rereading this one. It makes so much sense. Even though it is written from a business perspective it works for all aspects of life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian Brockhoff | 10/22/2011

    " Weak message. Not much here worth acting upon that is life changing. Stick with The Seven Habits for more solid lessons. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob | 9/14/2011

    " This book is a 30 page book stretched out to 300+. The basic message of the book is good but too long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marvin | 4/2/2011

    " Very simple and informative. A good guide to building trust, well worth the read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc | 2/11/2011

    " More great principles from the Covey family. Trust seems to be the central principle in all relationships including business relationships. Much of the red tape in business is due to lack of trust. Interesting perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 1/9/2011

    " Rereading this one. It makes so much sense. Even though it is written from a business perspective it works for all aspects of life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 1/1/2011

    " The book makes some great points and I hope the web site will a good resource. I found the content of the audio book a little lite though (a bit of a teaser to visit the web site). As long as the website's good it will have been a worthy read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 12/18/2010

    " More mandatory reading from the workplace. Pretty good stuff, but it's common sense--and for those for whom it isn't common sense, I don't think reading a book will help them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug | 9/30/2010

    " Fantastic book. It helped me in understanding the very real importance of trust in business and in life. Great for salespeople and people in any kind of leadership role. I cannot recommend it highly enough. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 9/29/2010

    " This is a discussion on trust and it's effect on relationships of all kinds. Everything from trust between individuals and to trust in a company or brand. Very interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 8/21/2010

    " Also read this one for work....the first two-thirds of the book were pretty good, but it was more difficult to maintain focus on the last section. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 8/14/2010

    " A well-written treatise on the core value of any successful enterprise or relationship: Trust. A must-read for any leader. Along with his father's seminal work, "7 Habits of Highly Effective People", a staple of any leader's library. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenn | 8/5/2010

    " One of the best books I have read on trust. I love the way he tries to take what the corporate world will sometimes describe as a fuzzy concept, and then builds an economic model around it to demonstrate how an organization can rise or fall due to trust or the lack of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Quantum Gardener | 6/4/2010

    " The Speed of Trust has the strongest argument for the benefits of trust in the workplace (and life generally) that I've read. It is worth revisting someday in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith | 5/29/2010

    " I listened to it this audio book from start to finish this morning while on a long run. I found it very meaningful. It was so good that I want to listen to it again soon. "
