The Code of Trust: An American Counterintelligence Expert's Five Rules to Lead and Succeed Kindle Edition
A counterintelligence expert shows readers how to use trust to achieve anything in business and in life.
Robin Dreeke is a 28-year veteran of federal service, including the United States Naval Academy, United States Marine Corps. He served most recently as a senior agent in the FBI, with 20 years of experience. He was, until recently, the head of the Counterintelligence Behavioral Analysis Program, where his primary mission was to thwart the efforts of foreign spies, and to recruit American spies. His core approach in this mission was to inspire reasonable, well-founded trust among people who could provide valuable information.
The Code of Trust is based on the system Dreeke devised, tested, and implemented during years of field work at the highest levels of national security. Applying his system first to himself, he rose up through federal law enforcement, and then taught his system to law enforcement and military officials throughout the country, and later to private sector clients. The Code of Trust has since elevated executives to leadership, and changed the culture of entire companies, making them happier and more productive, as morale soared.
Inspiring trust is not a trick, nor is it an arcane art. It’s an important, character-building endeavor that requires only a sincere desire to be helpful and sensitive, and the ambition to be more successful at work and at home. The Code of Trust is based on 5 simple principles:
1) Suspend Your Ego
2) Be Nonjudgmental
3) Honor Reason
4) Validate Others
5) Be Generous
To be successful with this system, a reader needs only the willingness to spend eight to ten hours learning a method of trust-building that took Robin Dreeke almost a lifetime to create.

As someone who has spent my career in the public and private intelligence fields, I feel this work provides great insights into the social psychological aspects of interpersonal dynamics from someone who has spent a lot of time in analyzing the criminal mind. A great insight for anyone with an interest in social psychology and how it impacts interpersonal relationships. --Phil Houston, CEO QVerity, 26 year veteran of CIA and co-author of the New York Times bestsellers Spy The Lie and Get The TruthTo paraphrase Charles Dickens, it is the best of times, the worst of times, the age of wisdom, the age of foolishness, the spring of hope, the winter of despair. The Code of Trust is an antidote to the cynicism and fear of today. Robin Dreeke, my friend and colleague from the FBI, will take you on a delightful journey -- his journey--to more effective leadership at a time when we ache for such genuine skills in others. --Reid Meloy Ph.D., forensic psychologist, author, and consultant to The FBI The foundation of leadership is trust. Robin shares his successful and, sometimes, unsuccessful experiences as a United States Marine Corps officer and as a FBI behavioral analyst that allowed him to crack the code to build trusting relationships. This book is a must read for leaders and those who aspire to lead. --Jack Schafer, author of The Like Switch "Trust is one of life's biggest obstacles, which is why Robin Dreeke's book is so important. The Code of Trust gets to the heart of the issue by addressing the core of how we build and inspire trust. His real world examples in stressful situations offer an engaging backdrop to learn about human nature. --Shane Parrish, publisher of the renowned Farnam Street blog --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
