Book: Speed of Trust: The One Thing That Changes Everything

Author: Stephen M .R. Covey

Stephen M. R. Covey, widely known as one of the world’s leading authorities on trust, asserts that it is “the most overlooked, misunderstood, underutilized asset to enable performance. Its impact, for good or bad, is dramatic and pervasive. It’s something you can’t escape.” Thankfully, it’s is also the thing that can dramatically improve your personal and professional success.

Why trust? The simple, often overlooked fact is this: work gets done with and through people. The Speed of Trust offers an unprecedented and eminently practical look at exactly how trust functions in every transaction and every relationship—from the most personal to the broadest, most indirect interaction. It specifically demonstrates how to establish trust intentionally so that you and your organization can forego the time-killing, bureaucratic check-and-balance processes that is so often deployed in lieu of actual trust.

This 2018 updated edition includes an insightful afterword by the author which explores ten key reasons why trust is more relevant now than ever before—including how trust is the new currency of our world today.

Military Outreach

Our Military Outreach program is a targeted effort to create awareness of multiple programs that offer reduced costs or authorized use of benefits specifically for active, former, and retired members of the military to support Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification, the credential widely recognized by both business and government for its credibility and value in contributing to an organization’s mission success. PMI SoMD’s interest in Military Outreach is simple - to help our fellow veterans. Our Military Outreach Committee consists of retired Navy and Marine Corps veterans, all PMPs, who have experienced the value of our PMP certifications and want to help others enjoy these benefits by sharing information on programs available to assist veterans in preparation for or during transition, or to enhance current skills sets and qualifications. We look forward to assisting you in pursuing your goals and objectives.
