The 2013 Edelman Trust Barometerrevealed that an alarming 85% of the general
public in the U.S. do not trust business leaders to tell the truth when
confronted with a difficult issue.And, 82% do not trust their government
leaders. Covey believes that low trust is a cancer that is spreading across
the world and into the global economy. Amidst these alarming statistics, Covey
strongly advocates that trust can still be restored.

“In today’s low-trust world, trust is the new currency of our global economy.”
said Stephen M. R. Covey. “It is the foundational driver for an organization’s
sustained success. A loss of trust will not only damage internal and external
relationships, it will also dramatically affect the speed at which you can
move and the cost of everything. On the other hand, the dividends of high
trust are tangible and real and they translate into economic advantage.”

“Most significantly,” Covey said, “trust is a learnable competency, a tangible
asset you can get good at creating. This is true for both leaders and
organizations. If a company can deliberately create trust as a competency, it
will have a stronger competitive edge, grow its market share, and gain and
maintain the loyalty of employees, customers, partners and constituents.”

Research shows that high-trust organizations return three times the total
return to shareholders than organizations with low trust. And, high-trust
schools are three-and-one-half times more likely to raise test scores than
low-trust schools.

On tour, Covey will present the business case for trust and dispel the myth
that trust is a soft, social virtue, but a hard-edged economic driver. He will
give attendees a greater vision of trust as a measurable, strategic advantage
as well as share the behaviors and tools common to all high-trust leaders
around the world.He will also teach how to extend “Smart Trust,” even in
environments where risk exists.
