292. Why Trusted Leaders Achieve More

Mar 29, 2021 | 0 comments

Time is your most valuable resource. So how do we better invest it?

The challenge is that most people go through their days spending time instead of investing it. None of us were taught how to do this in school. But in order to invest our time wisely we have to start investing in people.

Developing trust as an individual is the ONE Thing that makes everything else easier or unnecessary. David Horsager, author of “The Trust Edge” and the upcoming book “The Trusted Leader,” talks about what it means to become a trusted leader.
