The passion of these authors and their commitment to meaningful research is abundant in this compelling read. They have studied what separates digitally mature companies from the many companies that lag behind and conclude that the ability of their leaders to personally develop and enable trusting relationships is, indeed, the difference-maker. Using the Speed of Trust framework as a guide, the authors conducted direct interviews with digital leaders and show how their integrity, intent, capabilities, and results significantly impact performance across a broad range of transformation goals. The insights and lessons learned from these interviews will be invaluable to digital leaders. The pace of change in the digital world makes it easy to get caught up in the moving target of technology details—e.g. cloud computing, artificial intelligence, etc.—and lose sight of the ever more important, human-centric dimension of building trust.
