3. Trust and Inspire: How Truly Great Leaders Unleash Greatness in Others by Stephen M. R. Covey
Stephen M.R. Covey’s lifetime work has been dedicated to understanding trust in leadership and organizations. In his most recent book, Trust and Inspire, he suggests a new approach to leadership that is based on the idea that people are creative, collaborative, and full of potential. People who work with this kind of leader are motivated to improve both personally and professionally. Covey’s “beautifully written page-turner” provides a detailed plan for how leaders can transition from a “command and control” paradigm to a leadership style of “trust and inspire” according to Amy Edmondson, a Harvard Business School professor. This new approach has the potential to transform the way businesses operate, motivating employees to reach their full potential and creating lasting value for the organization.
Covey’s work is based on years of research and experience in the field of leadership. He has worked with some of the world’s most successful organizations, and his insights are sure to help any leader who is looking to build trust within their organization. The way we work is changing. Trust and collaboration are essential for a workforce to be successful, but they can be difficult to achieve when employees are spread out across time zones, cultures, personalities, generations, and technology. In his book The Speed of Trust, he argues that trust is the key to unlocking the full potential of a distributed workforce. So if you’re going to invest in real estate, you should build trust within your circle and the potential home buyer to overcome the challenges and create an environment that is productive, creative, and innovative.
4. Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It by Chris Voss

Voss draws on his real-world examples to explain how psychological techniques can be used to forge agreements, win over people’s trust, seize control, and do so while preserving cordial ties with our opponents. Without a doubt, reading Never Split the Difference will make you a better negotiator. The book is packed with useful strategies and techniques, all of which are backed up with real-world examples.
