Corporate, government, and institutional scandals in the last decade have led to widespread cynicism about those who hold positions of leadership.

Trust is the bedrock of all effective relationships. And the way this book goes deep into what trust is and how to improve it is masterful. The first edition was one of my top three books on leadership. The new material in this second edition makes the book even more valuable.

What I like most about Mike’s work is that he lays out practical steps, guidance, and examples based on his experience and from thinking about trust-building at a deeper level than most.

With enough power, any individual can accomplish much but no matter how much power they possess, what is accomplished cannot be sustained unless they are also deeply trusted. Mike Armour makes a truly important contribution to understanding successful leadership with this book. Any leader who wants to leave a sustainable legacy should have a well-worn copy of Leadership and the Power of Trust on their bookshelf.
