I am intrigued by the concept of trust, how it is earned, how it is lost, what the impact of a shift in levels of trust is and how it applies to the world of coaching and leadership. Here at the Forton group we have a set of principles that we believe support great coaching great leadership. One of these is trust - trust that the person you are working with is creative, capable, wise and good. This holds true for coaches and leaders. So I was fascinated to read what perspective on this Mr Seldon would bring.
This book was written some years ago and the author speculates about whether 2010 was a point in history where trust was at its lowest ebb. He cites many examples where trust had been eroded; politicians, journalists, police officers and many more. Clearly a time that inspired him to think through some of the key questions around trust and the author comes up with some good models and some practical ideas in different communities that would support the rebuilding of trust and create longevity of trust.
