Recommendation

In an interdependent world, progress requires trust. If you can’t trust others, you cannot work toward shared goals. This is true for families, couples, team members and the nations of the world. JetBlue chairman Joel Peterson, writing with David A. Kaplan, details “10 laws of trust.” He explains what trust means, how to promote it inside organizations and how to restore trust when it’s damaged. Peterson addresses the “Valentine’s Day Massacre” of interrupted service that JetBlue suffered in 2007 – and how the company healed the resulting breach of trust with its customers – but he doesn’t explore any more recent difficulties that the airline has experienced. Nonetheless, getAbstract recommends his concise, readable, ethical guide to all who must trust others or earn trust. And that’s everybody.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What trust is,
  • Why trust matters and
  • What the “10 laws of trust” mandate.

    In dealing with customers, I've learned that "trust," or the lack thereof, is the principle defining characteristic that will tell you where the relationship is headed long term. This is a solid effort toward defining what's important if you're to develop and maintain a productive business relationship.
