Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Insight into the most powerful force in leadership—from the perspective of someone who served a U.S. president, a U.S. senator, and a governor.

As a generation of baby boomers nears retirement, our country is facing a dilemma. By 2010, there may be a shortage of 4 to 6 million workers, causing a dearth of effective leaders. Nearly every recent crisis—corporate bankruptcies, political scandals, moral failures in the church—can be traced to a leadership deficit. The common denominator? Broken trust.

Author Les T. Csorba sees trust as the most indispensable force between leaders and followers. Here he offers observations gleaned from two decades of experience in government, business, church, and family. Part meditation, part how-to manual, Trust examines characteristics of trusted leadership, including The 7 Principles of the Trust. Finally, the book features interactive elements such as The Leader Check: a guide to evaluating whether you are developing the trust necessary to motivate and richly lead followers.
