2017 Edelman Trust Barometer

The 2017 Edelman TRUST BAROMETER reveals that trust is in crisis around the world. The general population’s trust in the institutions of business, government, NGOs, and media declined broadly, a phenomenon not recorded since Edelman began tracking trust in 2001.

The implications of the global trust crisis are deep and wide-ranging. It began with the Great Recession of 2008, but like the second and third waves of a tsunami, globalization and technological change have further weakened people’s trust in global institutions. The consequence is virulent populism and nationalism as the mass population has taken control away from the elites.


Key findings from the 2017 Trust Barometer include:


  • Trust in business (52 percent) dropped in 18 countries, while NGOs (53 percent) saw drop-offs as high as 10 points across 21 countries.


  • Employees, on average, are trusted 16 points more than CEOs on messaging around employee/customer relations (53 percent), financial earnings (38 percent), crises (37 percent), innovation (33 percent), industry issues (32 percent) or programs addressing societal issues (30 percent).


  • Half of the countries surveyed have lost faith in the system, led by France (72 percent) and Italy (72 percent), Mexico (67 percent), South Africa (67 percent) and Spain (67 percent).


  • Trust in traditional media fell 5 points to 57 percent, the steepest decline among platforms since 2012, followed by social media (41 percent), which dropped three points. By contrast, online-only media (51 percent) received the biggest bump in trust at five points.

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Not long ago, most discussions of leadership were about leaders – their personality traits, how to identify and groom those with ‘leadership potential,’ and what were the skills that leaders employed.

I dont believe it's the new core, it's been there all along, perhaps we are only just taking notice. Do you agree?

Collaboration and Shared Leadership are the norm in schools today. At the base of success with these tools is trust.

While I feel much of this has already been discovered and documented on The Speed of  Trust by Stephen Covey Jr.  I appreciate that there is now a scientific model to back it up.

Trust is not an operating system. It is not a commodity. It cannot be manufactured. It is earned in the daily relationships we have with other people. It is situational and contextual. When I consider the ten key elements of servant-leadership, they are the hard work used in entering relationships and building trust in the daily give and take.
