Stephen M.R. Covey presents a fresh approach to productivity and fulfillment. He asserts that trust is the foundation of the modern global economy and demonstrates how trust, and the speed at which it is established, is crucial for the success of any high-performing organization.
In his keynote he offers practical insight into the role of trust in all types of relationships and transactions, including personal and indirect interactions, and suggests ways to establish trust quickly to avoid relying on time-consuming checks and balances. It is a valuable resource for business leaders and public figures seeking to improve their performance and achieve success.
Our current leadership style is no longer effective in a rapidly changing world. Many organizations, teams, schools, and families still rely on a "command and control" model, prioritizing hierarchies and compliance. However, this approach is outdated and fails to consider the evolving nature of work and the preferences of the modern workforce.
Stephen M.R. Covey has dedicated his career to understanding trust in leadership and organizations. In his speech he proposes a shift from the traditional model to a leadership style centered on trust and inspiration. People do not want to be managed; they want to be led. Covey's approach focuses on the potential and creativity of individuals and inspires them to become their best selves and produce their best work. This knowledge is essential for leaders in a future where a dispersed workforce will be the norm and trust and collaboration will be necessary across borders, cultures, personalities, and generations.
In his keynote Stephen explores the concept of trust in leadership and how it can be utilized to drive success in organizations. Covey presents a new approach to leadership that goes beyond the traditional "command and control" model, focusing instead on inspiring and empowering individuals. Through this "inside out" approach, Covey shows how leaders can foster a culture of trust and collaboration that drives innovation and productivity. He offers practical strategies and tools for building trust with employees, clients, and stakeholders, and demonstrates how trust can serve as the foundation for a high-performing and successful organization. This keynote is ideal for business leaders and public figures looking to improve their leadership skills and create a culture of trust within their teams and organizations.
