The author of the book:

Robin Dreeke began working for the FBI in 1997 after graduating from the United States Naval Academy and serving in the Marine Corps.

The Code of Trust

The Code of Trust is a system developed by Robin Dreeke; it was tested and implemented during his years of work in the field. It is neither a strategy nor a leadership system, but it is a set of principles to understand and store your daily life. Since its creation these principles have changed the culture of whole companies and created fulfilled employees, leaving them with high spirits and therefore inevitably more productive. The book is full of anecdotes on how the author used and tested his methodology during spy missions that he undertook as an FBI agent. The method is simple but it’s implementation requires a lot of effort, which is encouraged several times in the reader throughout the book.

The main concept is: inspiring trust is not a game of prestige, neither is it an esoteric activity. Instead it is in fact an effort to be cooperative, empathetic and focused on improving oneself as a person, both professionally and personally.

For this reason the question is not how to use the book “The Code of Trust” but rather how does a person become deserving of trust?
