The September Carnival of Trust

post # 427 — September 4, 2007 — a General post

Carnival of trust logo

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.

Trust in strategy, economics and politics logo

First, in the category of trust in society, the economy and politics, look at Marty Lederman’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 “political rant” about the recent Lead in the Children’s toys events.

Annalee Hewitz explores issues of anonymity and trust in the use of Wikipedia.

Trust in sales and marketing logo

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 Setty’s advice in his ongoing series on “How to Distinguish Yourself” The latest in his advice series is Watch Who You Refer.

Trust in leadership and management logo

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 “values”, 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.

Trust in advising and influencing logo

Paul Pedrazzi, of Oracle, provides a stimulating explanation of “Why Social Networks Don’t Work for Business.”

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 firm’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.
