Stephen M. R. Covey is the co-founder of CoveyLink and the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust Practice. As a sought-after and compelling keynote speaker and adviser on trust, leadership, ethics, sales, and high performance, Stephen speaks to audiences around the world. He is the New York Times and number one Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Speed of Trust, a groundbreaking, paradigm-shifting book that challenges our age-old assumption that trust is merely a soft, social virtue and instead demonstrates that it is a hard-edged economic driver and a learnable, measurable skill that makes organizations more profitable, people more promotable, and relationships more energizing.

Audiences and organizations alike resonate with his insightful, relevant approach to real-time issues that affect their immediate and long-term performance.
