The September Carnival of Trust
post # 427 — September 4, 2007 — a General post
Welcome to the fourth Carnival of Trust, originally launched by Charles Green at Trust Matters.
My job was to choose the top 10 for this month. So, here are some interesting items that I think are worthy of your attention.
First, in the category of trust in society, the economy and politics, look at Marty Ledermanâ€™s frightening discussion of The Rosetta Stone of the Detention/Interrogation Scandal, in which he explores the role trust plays in the interrogation of prisoners.
Next, Tiffany offers what she unabashedly calls a â€œpolitical rantâ€ about the recent Lead in the Childrenâ€™s toys events.
Annalee Hewitz explores issues of anonymity and trust in the use of Wikipedia.
Alan Weis tells an interesting story about being approached by PR firms to be an expert for the media on the Minneapolis bridge collapse story — and why he declined.
Then there is Rajesh Settyâ€™s advice in his ongoing series on â€œHow to Distinguish Yourselfâ€ The latest in his advice series is Watch Who You Refer.
In The Secret Sauce for Virtual Teams, Anne Truitt Zelenka provides a stimulating discussion about how to make geographically dispersed teams function through the use of trust.
Also in the category of trust in managing, take a look at Bruce McEwen (who blogs under the name of Adam Smith, Esq.) who reports on a Harvard Business School Study of an advertising agency that tried to manage through â€œvaluesâ€, but found it harder than it first appears!
Rob Millard reports on a study in Harvard Magazine about the relationship between Trust and Betrayal in the Process of Strategy.
Paul Pedrazzi, of Oracle, provides a stimulating explanation of â€œWhy Social Networks Donâ€™t Work for Business.â€
Michelle Golden offers an interesting twist on client portability and trust. She discusses the provocative view that the fact that a member of the firm COULD walk away with one of the firmâ€™s clients is a mark of appropriate client intimacy!
Thanks to everyone who submitted blogs for consideration and for those looking for more about trust, the first, second and third carnivals should satisfy. If you’d like to be submit an article for consideration for the next carnival of trust you can do so here.
