Trust Tour Trust Tour: Trust is the basis for everything See the progress Todd Welch is making bringing trust to the world. Much of our success is based on how much we trust or don’t trust ourselves. When I realized just how important trust was in my life, I decided there was nothing better I could do then to focus on it, hence the launch of the tour. Every day at 1:20 in the afternoon I will post a story, a thought, an interview or a poll on trust. I know that sounds a little crazy but since we are on the Trust Tour, lets start our relationship with honesty, I am a little bit “different”. This commitment means I will need to document 1000 trust experiences before the end of the tour. The Trust Tour ends August 22nd 2012 at 1:20 PM (the date and time of my 50th birthday). Along the way I hope to inspire individuals, corporations, governments, teachers and students to raise the bar on trust and revolution the way we live our lives. To build trust you have to take a risk and I am willing to take that risk myself. I am asking you to take a small risk and join me so that together we might make a difference.AltaMont

Strategy of the DolphinStrategy of the Dolphin and Brain Technologies has developed superior frameworks for dealing with difficult organizational problems. Dudley Lynch’s brain mapping and reframing are essential for new innovation systems. Here are just a few comments from readers about Strategy of the Dolphin: I read this book when it first was published because I was in an executive position with a not for profit organization. Throughout the years I have referred to it and each time it has revealed another secret in my life style. .......Truly a keeper whether it is used for business or success in your personal endeavors. ... A life-changing book, This book provides value as a business strategy guide (for which it was written) and a life success guide. ....A framework for understanding the actions and motivations of people at a very simple level (sharks, carps and dolphins), and they offer clear tools for managing communications and conflicts. At a deeper level, this book provides a roadmap for understanding the maturing process of individuals and organizations, as they progress through the common challenges of learning and achievement -- from separating from our safety zones to gaining judgement and influence over the business and personal systems in which we exist. ... A fabulous book for anyone who is looking for a fresh perspective and genuinely useful tools for personal achievement. ....Years after I first read it, Strategy of the Dolphin still is one of my business and personal bibles.

No one organization has the talent, the resources, or the time to innovate and succeed on their own. That is both the problem and the opportunity. Collaborating is theoretically easy, practically hard, and essential for success.
