Bridges Of Trust: Making Accountability Authentic
Trust, the most important issue facing the world today, lies at the foundation of every relationship. Trust is the keystone of success in work and in life. It crosses cultures and generations. Building and restoring trust is our number one challenge today.
Best selling authors and consultants, David Irvine and Jim Reger, contend that the bridge of trust is built on accountability: the ability to be counted on. In order to inspire trust, you have to be a trustworthy person. When the going gets tough, it is accountable people who are called on to get the job done.
To be all you can be, to reach your full potential, accountability has to be authentic. It has to be aligned with your values, your highest aspirations, and your passion. As you will learn in this book, authenticity takes accountability to a whole new level. Authenticity transforms our innate drive to contribute into the ability to make a difference.
This book will help you understand accountability and how to inspire and achieve it in your personal and professional life. By making accountability authentic, you build a culture of greatness where agreements are aligned with values, and fear, blame and entitlement are replaced with ownership, service and courage.
"I would recommend this book to anyone seeking to make a difference in the lives of those around them."
"The authors offer a fresh, inspirational and effective approach to the challenge of accountability, recognizing its importance as a foundation for great leadership."
The Authentic Leader - It's About Presence, Not Position

If you are committed to evolving your soul and the souls of those you serve, this book will inspire and guide you to find and amplify your voice, while inspiring and guiding others to find theirs. In the process, you will discover meaning, significance, and deep satisfaction in your life.

Becoming Real: Journey To Authenticity
Best-selling author David Irvine takes us on a journey to authenticity in business and in life, and proposes a "roadmap to the real."
Challenging the conventional definitions of corporate success, Irvine claims that genuine, effective leadership does not come from position, but from presence – from the soul rather than the role. Irvine shares his personal quest for authenticity in lively anecdotes, and provides a compelling case for the benefits of shedding façade, pretence and the need for prestige.
Personal, provocative and practical, this book offers enduring wisdom for our image-obsessed times.
"To claim one’s truest path and to live it is the only journey worth living. David Irvine has lived such a life and clearly shows the way to authenticity.
