Trust Me is one of those rare books that provides timeless insights with personal insights and help for all of us. Hastings and Potter take the reader on a leadership journey and challenge us at the end of each chapter with thought-provoking questions and personal growth suggestions. I literally could not put this book down! It has helped me and my team to understand how we can be successful leaders. This is a must read for any person wanting to improve their leadership skills.

Wayne Hastings and Ron Potter have written an inspirational book that provides the key principles we all need to guide us in our personal and business lives. It is a book to be kept close at hand to keep our thinking and actions on the path of a principle based life. The real life stories and the opportunity provided to reflect after each chapter with thought provoking questions about ourselves and how we interact with others helps teach us how to be leaders others can trust.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Gerry Stern on May 19, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Presents a style of leadership based on 8 values: humility; development; commitment; focus; compassion; integrity; peacemaking; and endurance. The authors explore how these spiritual values are keys to building trust with people and becoming a successful leader, as well as building a successful career. This book has its distinct point of view-no question about it. But given the abundance of bad leadership in business, politics, and other spheres, the spiritual qualities this book links with effective leadership deserve serious consideration.

Format: Hardcover
Having read a number of Management-style books over the years, I always found it was a bit like panning for gold to find the nugget that could be applied. Until now, I had not read one where the concepts were so clearly presented, and where every principle was significant, and I could embrace them as aligning with my own concept of leadership style, both professionally and personally. As Hastings and Potter present, these can't be separated.
The leadership concepts are well described, and argument convincing. The style of summarizing the main points of at the end of each chapter, a Bible study approach providing questions to reflect on how to apply in one's life, and applicable quotes and entertaining stories from their experiences to support the points, make for enjoyable reading, and easy reference.
The book is not just for business executives, it has application to all who represent the company. The concept of humility and endurance as they describe them are the kingpins of how we want our company to be known, and represented. The book will be recommended reading for our commercial team; even though some don't have other company people for whom they are responsible, they represent us, are responsible for themselves, and families, and will learn from the work of Hastings and Potter.

Format: Hardcover
I lead a team of individuals who are seasoned leaders and probably feel qualified to teach a course in leadership. Well as my father always told me growing up a good day is when you learn something and put it to practical use. If you are leading a group of individuals and think you have the game mastered think again. Read Trust Me because it is a refreshing book with simple, practical ideas that can be utilized in any type of business. It really is a chance to do some introspective thinking on how effective my leadership style really is on a daily basis. Lastly, this book put into perspective the greatest leader of all times Jesus. Many people work 60 plus hours a week and lose perspective on the big picture this book will help you in your daily life as well. I bought the book prior to a plane ride and could not put it down.

Format: Hardcover
When I started my career as a physician, I had no idea that managing my employees would be so much harder than caring for my patients. My medical training had prepared me to be a clinician and a healer, but I didn't have the slightest idea about how to be a leader. In Trust Me, Ron Potter and Wayne Hastings reveal the eight characteristics that every leader must have to earn the trust and support of his or her staff, team, or organization. Writing with compassion and wisdom, Potter and Hastings give readers the information and inspiration they need to develop these characteristics. I was relieved to learn that I didn't have to be ruthless, devious, or bossy to be a good boss. Using the techniques I learned in Trust Me, I find that I'm not only a better, leader, I'm also a better person. Great book!
