In an article for the blog 800CEORead Stephen M. R. Covey, son of the famous Stephen R. Covey, describes the cost of trust in America as follows.
"When trust is low, in a company or in a relationship, it places a hidden “tax” on every transaction: every communication, every interaction, every strategy, every decision is taxed, bringing speed down and sending costs up. My experience is that significant distrust doubles the cost of doing business and triples the time it takes to get things done."
