Hear the Federal News Radio Book Club: The SPEED of Trust
This week on Federal News Radio 1500 AM’s In Depth with Francis Rose program, we had a really wonderful discussion this week with Covey, Dave Wennergren, the Defense Department’s deputy CIO, Rose and myself about this book. If you couldn’t listen on Wednesday, we have it posted online here. You can listen to the entire hour. You can also hear it here:
Rose is also going to be replaying the conversation this coming Thursday or Friday.
If you want a taste of the book, listen to the conversation — Wennergren did such a good job making sure we tied the book in to the challenges facing agencies these days. We spoke to him about the program earlier on Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris. But you can also read excerpts over at Federal Computer Week’s November 17, 2008 issue. They have three parts:
- Organizational success: A matter of trust: Leaders will reap dividends if they align their organizations with core principles and behaviors that increase trust.
- The 4 cores of credibility: The key to building trust in organizations is alignment — linking an organization’s design around those cores and behaviors.
- The 13 behaviors for cultivating trust: These behaviors stem from character, competence, or a combination of the two.
Again — you can hear the entire book club discussion here. I’d love to hear your thoughts about the book… about the book club format… and about future books that we can select.
A very special thanks to Rose for agreeing to adopt the book club idea… to Covey for agreeing to participate — he was really great — but particularly to Wennergren. I’m a huge Wennergren fan anyway, but… he just was so helpful every step of the way with this process — coming up with the book… and then participating in each and every part of it.
So… which book next?
