Stephen M.R. Covey Talks About Trust

By John Jantsch

Stephen M.R. CoveyStephen M.R. Covey joined me to talk about trust for the August session of the Duct Tape Marketing Coaching Excellence Series.

Covey is co-founder and CEO of CoveyLink Worldwide and author of bestselling The SPEED of Trust

He discovered that not only could he serve many more customers over lunch, people were rarely dishonest and, in fact, tips were higher. By extending trust he built his own.
