Your Most Important Superpower
Trust is the foundation of every relationship you have, and your trustworthiness is critical to your professional success or failure. It is therefore the most important superpower you can have, more than the next four, combined. But trust is neither static nor universal. Dr. Yoram Solomon shares his findings from The Book of Trust and tells you two things you did not know about trust, which would help you be even more trusted.
Dr. Yoram Solomon is the author of The Book of Trust and 12 more books, and an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship at SMU. He was named one of the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers and one of the Top 20 Global Thought Leaders on Culture consistently in the past few years. His insights on trust come from his original research and from his experiences as an infantry soldier in the Israeli Defense Forces, a pilot, a corporate executive, and an elected official.
