The Trust Edge: How Top Leaders Gain Faster Results, Deeper Relationships, and a Stronger Bottom Line
David Horsager, Minneapolis: Summerside Press (2010)

Some people are takers and some people are givers. Takers are only in relationships to receive. Givers invest in others. Natural givers are the happiest people I know.

Consider how to be a giver of:

  • Attention: Can you notice or acknowledge people more?
  • Resources: Can you set a plan to give away a larger percentage of your income every year?
  • Time: Can you spend more time making a positive difference?
  • Opportunity: Can you give someone a chance or an opportunity?
  • Help: Can you help someone in a practical way (Horsager, 2010 p.188)?

The Trust Edge is available from the OSU Leadership Center.
