The Carnival of Trust is up for the month of June, hosted by Dave Stein, and it provides a wealth of perspective on the state of trust at the midpoint of 2009.
For those who don’t know him, Dave Stein is a consummate student of sales. A former sales consultant, trainer and author, he now runs ES Research Group http://www.davesteinsblog.com/esr/ from the hardship environs of Martha’s Vineyard. Think of ESR as the JD Powers or Consumer Reports of the sales training field.
I have gotten to know Dave over the past year and found him to be ethical, smart, insightful, sober (thinking-wise anyway), and possessed of fine judgment.
Just the person to host the Carnival of Trust.
Dave has selected a tasty sampler of things trust-related. Just a few:
- The trust crisis facing the PM and Parliament in the UK
- The state of trust in sales as a profession
- Trust in the medical profession
- Trust-based scams
- Ten practical steps for improving business relationship trust.
And that’s just five. Check the full Carnival of Trust to read those items and the other five, and Dave’s commentary on all of them.
Many thanks to Dave Stein for hosting a solid, content-rich and thought-provoking Carnival. Drop on by and treat your brain to a feast.
