Trust is the glue that binds people together --from our families and friendships to our companies and communities. But trust is a fragile gift that can be abused, broken, and exploited with devastating consequences. In The Trust Protocol, Mac Richard shows you how to
· process the pain of betrayal
· prioritize relationships and work
· discern whom to trust
· decide when and how to move on
· deploy trust in even the harshest environments
· develop active integrity
The Trust Protocol provides a clear path not just to manage these tensions but to embrace them in order to experience the genuine connectedness and effectiveness we're created for--in all areas of life.
"Trust is the great foundation on which we build our families, workplaces, churches, friendships, and neighborhoods--that raw commitment to trust another person. It's a daring, scary reality. In The Trust Protocol, Mac invites us to live into this reality--not ignoring brokenness and betrayal but rather leaning into the strength of trust no matter the risk. Because the reward of deep trust is a wholly improved life."-- Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker and lead pastor of National Community Church
"In The Trust Protocol, Mac explains clearly how powerful we really are when we align our walk and our talk and how to use that power to make the world a better place."-- Rich Froning Jr., four-time individual and two-time Affiliate Cup CrossFit Games champion
"The kind of wisdom contained in The Trust Protocol doesn't come the easy way. In his new book, Mac shares from his valuable life experience how to not only earn trust but also keep it."-- Steven Furtick, pastor, Elevation Church, and New York Times bestselling author
"The more trust we have, the more influence we have, and this book teaches us a process for building the single greatest human trait we can possibly develop--being trustworthy."-- Buzz Williams, head coach, Virginia Tech men's basketball
