Today, David Horsager publishes his new book, “Trusted Leader, 8 Pillars That Drive Results“. He writes about and researches the powerful concept of trust all around the world. He heads up the Trust Edge Leadership Institute, where leaders and organizations are helped to become the most trusted in their industry. We asked David what inspired him to write this new book:
I wrote Trusted Leader because most of us are trying to solve the wrong problem. After count-less trainings and hours of implementing new frameworks, nothing produces the results we want to see. We keep trying to find something that will change our culture and our business. But nothing sticks. Why? Because TRUST is at the root of every challenge. Without trust, influence is destroyed. Without trust, leaders lose their people. Without trust, people and businesses fail. Trust can be your most vulnerable weakness or your greatest asset. Trusted Leader is a powerful parable followed by an actionable framework that you can actually use to create an impact on your business and life.
“Trusted Leader” is a business parable and action-able business guide in one. He introduces readers to his Eight Pillars of Trust through the journey of a senior leader who thought success was certain. Follow CEO Ethan Parker as he discovers the power of trust and how to apply it amid the complexities of leadership, change, and culture transformation.
The first half of the book brings you into a true-to-life story of Ethan, a leader who thought success was certain. While his fast-growing organization had huge potential, Ethan faces a series of unexpected challenges which awaken him to a deeper gap in his business. The second half of the book teaches the 8-pillar framework that you can use to solve key challenges in your business. The framework is laid out in an easy-to-use format so that any leader can apply it to their challenges to solve and become a more trusted leader.
What can readers learn from Trusted Leader?
Readers will learn how to solve their biggest challenges, four stages to kickstart trust in their business and life, why trust is at the core of every leadership and organizational challenge, and how to implement trust into their daily life.
“A lack of trust is your biggest expense. Without trust, transactions cannot occur. Without trust, influence is destroyed. Without trust, leaders lose their people. Trust can be either your most vulnerable weakness or your greatest asset.”
The Eight Pillars of Trust (Clarity, Compassion, Character, Competency, Commitment, Connection, Contribution, and Consistency) are based on Horsager’s original research and extensive experience working with Fortune 500 companies and top government agencies around the globe. In addition to the business parable, this book is rich in practical advice for implementing each of the Eight Pillars. You will learn strategies to increase alignment, over-come attrition, and get absolutely clear on executing your top priorities. Horsager offers a road map for how to become the most trusted expert in your industry.
