People vastly prefer to get what they need from people they trust. That’s why trusted sellers generate more sales, faster closings and lasting client relationships.
Trusted advisors are more likely to have their advice taken, open new lines of communication, gain referrals and have more constructive and effective client interactions.
The most effective leaders don’t demand power-based or hierarchical obeisance, but instead influence others to take on the organization’s goals as their own.
Organizations that cultivate trusting relationships, internally and externally, for their own sake have a decided advantage in business.
The pragmatic, field-oriented follow-on to the classic The Trusted Advisor. Green and Howe go deep into the how-to’s of trusted business relationships — loaded with stories, exercises, tips and tricks, and deeply practical
“Sales” and “Trust” rarely inhabit the same sentence. Customers fear being “sold” — they suspect sellers have only their own interests at heart. Is this a built-in conflict? Or can sellers serve buyers’ interests and their own as well? The solution is simple to state, hard to live—and totally worth the effort.
This classic book explores the paradigm of trust through the filter of professional services. It is a blend of thought and practice, clear ideas and practical suggestions, and it has found a place on many professionals’ working bookshelves.

We analyzed data from what is arguably the world’s largest study of personal trust-worthiness, based on 72,880 respondents who took the Trust Quotient Assessment between 2008 and 2015.
The Trust Quotient Assessment is a proprietary instrument that measures trustworthiness as a composite of four variables: credibility, reliability, intimacy, and self-orientation. Each respondent’s trustworthiness score is determined by answers to 20 questions – five questions for each of the four variables – which are then combined to produce an overall score on a scale from 20 to 100.
Our findings show that, contrary to conventional wisdom, expertise is not the key to building trust in business and professional situations. Investing in acquiring more knowledge and adding credentials is rarely the smartest way to increase trustworthiness or to expand your business.
In this White Paper we elaborate on an important conclusion from our analysis: companies should focus more on soft skills when it comes to building trust with clients, suppliers, and colleagues.
In understanding trustworthiness, we also address the roles of gender, age, and industry affiliation, as well as regional and cultural differences.
