Leading executives demonstrate the value of trustworthy relationships and offer tools to help managers spot both the "good guys" and "bad guys" in their lives.
Whom can you trust? It's not an easy question to answer, yet it couldn't be more important to try. Hook up with the wrong crowd, and there goes a career--or worse. As scholar Linda Stroh argues, trust is a prerequisite for effective management, and it contributes directly to personal success. To find out how to tell the "good guys" from the "bad guys," Stroh interviewed over three hundred businesspeople. The result is a thorough and invaluable compendium of lively stories, lessons learned in the trenches, and practical tools and principles. Readers will learn how to identify the trustworthy at work and in their personal lives--giving their careers a boost and helping them sleep better at night.
