Jordan KimmelBob Whipple is one of the clearest thinkers I have come across in the trust profession. I have read over a dozen books on trust over the last year and suggest this book to anyone interested in this important subject. Any time I "dog ear" several quotes and learn something new- my reading time was well spent. Whipple has a unique take on what it takes to be trusted in a relationship- his concept of "reinforcing candor" is something that we should all embrace. A clear and an important read...

Readers come away with pragmatic, instantly implementable tactics based on trust that lead to real and profitable outcomes. Plus, it's just a fun read.

Lynn SullivanWe were delighted to work with Bob Whipple, The Trust Ambassador.  With Bob’s help and guidance, we were able to have a huge impact on the culture of our group.   Within one year, “Trust” became the #1 STRENGTH of our organization.  Bob was also instrumental in the creation of our strategic plan, which kept our goals visible and resulted in numerous accomplishments by the team.   This year, for the first time in the organization’s history, the entire team was involved in the creation of our strategic plan.   I would highly recommend Bob’s services to any organization.   Bob is easy to work with and facilitates group work with expert results.
