The Signature Leading at the Speed of Trust™ Certification workshop includes a two-day leadership training and management course that improves leadership skills and inspires organizational culture change. The course teaches managers and leaders pragmatic, practical, and actionable skills that can be implemented immediately regardless of their role in the organization. The instruction, discussion, and tools provided in this workshop will enhance the vision of leaders who return to their organization with a new language and behavior to lead in a way that inspires trust in all facets of life.
Rather than just teaching principles in a course, Leading at the Speed of Trust institutionalizes new language and new behavior in the context of real work. This powerful framework enables managers to dramatically increase their personal credibility, engage their people in a completely different way, and to be more committed and more accountable for results.
During this signature event, you will meet author Stephen M. R. Covey and learn from him during a Q & A session. The third day is the T3 (train-the-trainer) session, which will certify and equip you with the mind set, skill set and tool set to teach our Leading at the Speed of Trust workshop in your organization.
Two-Day Training Workshop Summary
During this course, participants learn the career-critical leadership skills necessary to impact performance within their organizations.
They learn how leveraging trust as a competency dramatically lowers costs and increases profits and influence. The course significantly
enhances leadership capabilities by teaching participants to master The 4 CORES® of Credibility
and The 13 Behaviors®
of High Trust, and how to model them on a daily basis.
Participants are engaged in case studies and activities based in their current work – not on theoretical examples or academic models. Leaders focus on increasing the speed and magnitude of their individual and organizational results by improving trust and increasing influence with their key stakeholders. In addition, the workshop provides ample opportunity to collaborate in a discussion with other leaders sharing different perspectives and solutions to common organizational trust issues.
The workshop is based on years of organizational leadership and research and is centered on an in-depth analysis of the principles taught by author Stephen M. R. Covey in his New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, The Speed of Trust.
4 CORES® of Credibility and 13 Behaviors® of High Trust
The 4 CORES® of Credibility and The 13 Behaviors® of High Trust are
key parts of the workshop training. During this part of the training, four key elements are learned that are vital for an
individual to develop in order to have the foundation of credibility upon which trust can be built. Two of these cores deal
with character; two with competence. What gives trust its harder, more pragmatic edge is recognizing that competence is as
vital to trust as character, and that both character and competence are within our ability to create or to change.
During the 13 Behaviors® of High Trust part of the training, key behaviors are identified that are common to all high trust individuals. What’s most exciting about these behaviors is that they can be learned and applied by any individual at any level within any organization or relationship. The net result is a significantly increased ability to generate trust with all stakeholders in order to achieve better results and more joyful relationships.
360 Feedback Trust Quotient™ (tQ)
Many organizations measure trust levels of their teams and entire enterprise. This is directionally useful but the art of mastering personal or organizational change requires that you breakdown the trust components that lead to those observed behaviors starting with yourself. That is the breakthrough approach that makes the Leading at the Speed of Trust™ training course a proven, game changing program.
The highlight of the workshop is the 360º Feedback Trust Quotient™ (tQ). This provocative inquiry asks co-workers, direct reports, and subordinates if they trust them. The resulting confidential, multiple-page report identifies which behaviors are strengths and which are weaknesses. Leaders are then able to develop a personal Trust Action Plan™ to implement as part of a continued process of leading in a way that inspires trust within their teams and organizations.

“The Trust Quotient 360 audit literally changed my life and my career. I gained insights I have never before seen in my long and successful career. More important, I learned skills to dramatically increase my success and results going forward.”
“In a ‘flatter’ world, trust is the ‘secret sauce’ that significantly enhances learning, relationships, and results. Covey’s breakthrough insight that trust is a competency is both revolutionary and immediately practical. CEOs and Chief Learning Officers will embrace The Speed of Trust as an authentic and actionable strategy – a road map – for increasing the effectiveness of their organizations and leaders.”
–Elliott Masie, CEO, The Learning CONSORTIUM
