The Trust Edge: How Top Leaders Gain Faster Results, Deeper Relationships and a Stronger Bottom Line by David Horsager

The Trust Edge (2012) explains why trust is not only essential for a happy personal life, but the fundamental factor in successful businesses and business relationships. It outlines and discusses eight so-called pillars of trust and argues that these principles should be at the basis of your daily actions, in order for you to gain what the author terms the “trust edge.” The book also discusses how to rebuild trust once it’s been damaged.
