Stanford in Redwood City Speaker Series - The 10 Laws of Trust with Joel Peterson

Can trust make us better leaders? Can we learn to trust better? Yes to both, says Joel Peterson, chairman of JetBlue Airways and author of The 10 Laws of Trust: Building the Bonds that Make a Business Great. According to Joel, trust is the cornerstone of all business, and certain guidelines can help us both build trust and trust others more effectively. Discover how to build trust strategically in new relationships, the three conditions that trust requires, and why the best leaders are the most trusting ones.

In addition to being Chairman of JetBlue and Founding Partner of Peterson Partners, a Salt Lake City-based investment management firm, Joel is on the faculty at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University. He has been teaching courses in real estate investment, entrepreneurship, and leadership since 1992. Joel formerly served as Chief Executive Officer of Trammell Crow Company, then the world’s largest private commercial real estate development firm. Joel earned an MBA from Harvard Business School and received his Bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University.
