‘Contains great wisdom.’ - Joseph Jaworski,
author of Synchronicity: The Inner Path of Leadership
The key to any business relationship, organisation, and society
A smooth collaboration is what every organisation aims for, but this may be much harder to achieve in practice than we imagine it would be. We constantly face complex problems that need to be solved, to which many leaders respond impulsively: they either fight or flight. Fortunately, we increasingly often see leaders who go for a more in-between solution – they create trust.
Based on their personal experiences deep in a large number of leading organisations, the authors demonstrate the true value of trust in a business context and environment, and how it helps talent to grow and bloom.
A lack of trust often leaves problems unsolved. Trust creates a better society, a more successful organisation, and happier employees.
‘A good leadership team demands mutual trust as the foundation for a healthy company culture.
Trust within the team is a must if you want to operate with speed and empowerment, with a sound view of the market, and simply as a precondition for enjoying your job.’
- Frans van Houten, CEO Koninklijke Philips
‘To me, trust means being able to share your vulnerability without any reticence.’
- Erik-Jan Mares, CEO Zeeman
‘Trust is always my first principle, so I don’t have to look back to know that agreements are met.’
- Chris Worp, Managing Director The Ocean Cleanup
‘Trusting is letting go.’
- Mirjam de Blécourt, member of the Dutch Senate, Partner Baker McKenzie
