Masterclass by Stephen M.R. Covey

Build High Trust Leaders that get Results

About the Masterclass

The two most critical jobs to be done for organizations today are to win in the workplace and to win in the marketplace. As we consider the people we lead, the natural question that follows is, how big is the gap between performance and potential? 

The vast majority of the workforce today possess far more talent, creativity, ingenuity, intelligence, and ability than their present jobs require, or even allow them to contribute. The fact is, most organizations are over-managed and under-led. 

The traditional Command & Control style of leadership that is prevalent, to some degree, in 92% of organizations today, is incapable of inspiring the level of commitment, innovation, collaboration, belonging, loyalty and performance needed to deliver on the two critical jobs to be done in today’s ever-changing, disruptive world. 

The antidote to Command & Control, simply put, is Trust & Inspire. A Trust & Inspire leader models authentic, inclusive behavior with humility and courage. They’re not only trustworthy, but they’re also trusting, and their people deliver on that trust. They inspire others to willingly give their hearts and minds, not just to work, but to contribute meaningfully to something that matters. People don’t just want to be motivated, they want to be inspired. Contrary to what most people believe, inspiring others is a learnable skill. 

Trust & Inspire is the solution to the future of work

In his newest and most transformative book, Trust & Inspire, Stephen M. R. Covey makes the compelling argument that even though our world has changed drastically, our leadership style has not. Most organizations, teams, schools, and families today still operate from a model of “Command & Control,” focusing on hierarchies and compliance from people. But because of the changing nature of the world, the workforce, the work itself, and the choices we have for where and how to work and live, these old rules of leadership no longer apply.

Fundamental Beliefs of Trust & Inspire Leaders explores five beliefs that transform how leaders think and behave. Trust & Inspire leaders have an expansive view of people and leadership and they deeply understand and are guided by fundamental beliefs about human effectiveness. The cumulative effect of these beliefs creates a Trust & Inspire leadership mindset.

Fundamental Beliefs of Trust & Inspire Leaders is ideal for every person who wants to transform their leadership style from Command & Control to Trust & Inspire.
