About the Author

""John hits the mark with this book: the world is intuitively reaching out for leadership that behaves with integrity and appropriate humility, whilst exhibiting the necessary foresight and confidence to help their organisations and communities be successful with a wider responsible vision. John's practical and inspired approach offers a structured framework to help anyone succeed in this way - backed up by enough studies and evidence to show this approach is real. I can see this will reflect the defining behavioural style for leadership very quickly."" * Martyn Proctor, Executive Director, Ernst & Young *
""This is a well-researched and thought-provoking book on the concept of trustworthiness and its importance to modern organisations in a world of ever-increasing transparency. Most importantly, it asks searching questions of leaders and sets out a challenging, yet practical series of actions that can, if done together and with consistency, build genuine trust across and beyond an organisation. I would thoroughly recommend to leaders in all sectors - it's time to take the red pill."" * Heath Monk, CEO, Future Leaders Trust *
""This inspiring book sets out a leader's individual responsibility for driving the actions that create organisational trust. It is highly readable and addresses both the theory and the practice of the trust-building challenge. The measures John recommends are highly practical and well within the capability of all business leaders who are determined to leave a positive legacy."" * Jane Frost CBE, CEO, Market Research Society *
"The Trusted Executive is an invaluable forward thinking handbook for every existing or aspiring leader. John clearly defines and develops key attributes for leaders the world deserves. The reader is coached through theoretical and practical exercises and examples which demonstrate both significant personal experience and considerable depth of research." * Gina Lodge, CEO, The Academy of Executive Coaching *
""What this bold and thought-provoking book shows is that there is an urgent need to re-build trust through developing leaders that don't just 'talk the talk', but who also 'walk the talk"" * Paul Kehoe, CEO, Birmingham Airport *
"The red pill moment represents the choice between living the status quo or embracing a new reality. Well written, thought provoking and practical - here's to the nice guys!" * Rob Edwards, Managing Director, FARM Digital *
"I've read many books on organizational trust and John's is one of the best - a welcome addition and a must-read." * Barbara Brooks Kimmel, CEO and Co-founder, Trust Across America *
