Stephen R. Covey Quote: “The real beginning of influence comes as others sense you are being influenced by them – when they feel understood by you – that you have listened deeply and sincerely, and that you are open.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Trust is a function of both character and competence. Of course you can’t trust someone who lacks integrity, but if someone is honest but they can’t perform, you’re not going to trust them either. You won’t trust them to get the job done.”
Stephen R. Covey Quote: “Every exaggeration of the truth once detected by others destroys our credibility and makes all that we do and say suspect.”
