SHORTLISTED: CMI Management Book of the Year 2017 - Commuter's Read Category

The Trusted Executive helps leaders create a strategy for building trust in a globalized, technology-enabled, diverse and increasingly sceptical world.

Through innovative coaching exercises, self-assessment exercises, inspirational interviews with international CEOs and underpinned by rigorous academic research, The Trusted Executive gives leaders the tools to build trust through three key pillars: ability, integrity and benevolence. Underpinning these pillars lie nine habits of trustworthiness; habits that will enable executives to deliver outstanding results, inspiring relationships and a positive contribution to society. With tools for measuring and developing leadership trust and focused strategies for handling trust violations, The Trusted Executive takes account of the ever-changing, increasingly diverse and multi-generational work environment. An essential tool for leaders who want to create a positive long-term legacy.

More about John Blakey

John hits the mark with this book: the world is intuitively reaching out for leadership that behaves with integrity and appropriate humility, whilst exhibiting the necessary foresight and confidence to help their organisations and communities be successful with a wider responsible vision. John's practical and inspired approach offers a structured framework to help anyone succeed in this way - backed up by enough studies and evidence to show this approach is real. I can see this will reflect the defining behavioural style for leadership very quickly.
