The last decade of corporate, government, and institutional scandals has led to widespread distrust of those in positions of leadership. Dozens of independent studies confirm that corporate America is running a serious trust deficit. It's as glaring as our trade deficit and no less damaging to the bottom line.

The antidote to this trust crisis, the author believes, is Trust-Centered Leadership™. He illustrates eight basic principles of Trust-Centered Leadership™ by drawing on his own experience as president of a financially-troubled college.

Dr. Armour offers two formulas to guide leaders in building a high-trust culture. The first formula focuses on the five things people must feel in order for trust to prevail.

The second formula centers on seven key qualities that leaders must manifest if they are to enjoy high levels of trust. The book also identifies 14 elements of character and conduct that influence the depth of trust that leaders engender.

About the Author:

For over 30 years Dr. Mike Armour has helped leaders and executives perfect their professional skills, attain peak performance, and discover new dimensions of satisfaction and fulfillment. Today his clients include some of America s largest corporations, including Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, Raytheon, TXU Energy, Textron/Bell Helicopter, American Standard, and Frito-Lay.

As the founder of Strategic Leadership Development International, Mike knows firsthand the world of top-level decision making. In his early 30s he began a highly successful private school in California. By 37 he was one of the youngest college presidents in the United States.

A year later he was a naval reserve commander, eventually retiring as a captain with nationwide management duties in the field of intelligence. During his 35 years of naval service, he was decorated three times for his ground-breaking work in computerizing the naval intelligence community.

For years Mike has been a successful author in leadership and other fields, currently published in over a dozen languages. His writing, like his executive coaching, are marked by an astute understanding of personal behavior, organizational dynamics, and the process of cultural change.

He brings this same insight to his frequent appearances as a keynote speaker on venues all across the U.S. and around the world. With years of experience in radio and television, he is an effective communicator in almost any setting.
