The Trusted Advisor by David H. Maister

GreenRobert M. The essential “must have” tool for professionals who advise or negotiate with others in today’s new economy. But technical mastery of your discipline is not maistsr, assert world-renowned professional advisors David H. Green, and Robert M. The key to professional success, they argue, is the ability to earn the trust and confidence of clients. The creation of trust is what earns the right to influence clients; trust is also at the root of client satisfaction and loyalty.

The workings of trust are even more critical in the new economy than in the old. Maister, Green, and Galford enrich our understanding of trust — yet they have also written a deeply practical book.

Using their model of “The Trust Equation,” they dissect the rational and emotional components of trustworthiness. With precision and clarity, they detail five distinct steps you must take to create a trust-based relationship. Each step — engage, listen, frame, envision, and commit — is richly described in distinct chapters. The book is peppered with pragmatic “top ten” lists aimed at improving advisors’ effectiveness that can be put to use instantly.


It also includes a trust self-diagnostic in the appendix.

This immensely readable book will be welcomed by the inexperienced advisor and the most seasoned expert alike. The authors use anecdotes, experiences, and examples — successes and mistakes, their trustted and others’ — to great effect.

A Sneak Preview Let”s start with a question: What benefits would you obtain if your clients trusted you more? The more your clients trust you, the more they will: Reach for your advice Be inclined to accept and act on your recommendations Bring you in on more advanced, complex, strategic issues Treat you as you wish to be treated Respect you Share more information that helps you to help them, and improves the quality of the service you provide Pay your bills without question Refer you to their friends and business acquaintances Lower the level of stress in your interactions Give you the benefit of the doubt Forgive you when you make a mistake Protect you when you need it even from their own organization Warn you of dangers that you might avoid Be comfortable and allow you to be comfortable Involve you early on when their issues begin to form, rather than later in the process or maybe even call you first!

Trust your instincts and judgments including those about other people such as your colleagues and theirs We would all like to have such professional relationships! This book is about what you must do to obtain these benefits. What changes would you make to this list? What would you add?


Next, let”s consider three additional questions: Do you have a trusted advisor, someone you turn to regularly to advise you trustes all your most important business, career, and perhaps even personal decisions? If you do, what are the characteristics of that person?

If you do not, what characteristics would you look for in selecting your maistdr advisor? Here is a listing of traits that our trusted advisors have in common. Using trusetd Golden Rule we should treat others as we wish to be treatedwe can probably make a fair assumption or at least a good first approximation that this list, trustde your list, is not much different from a list your clients would make. So, if you want your clients to treat you as their trusted advisor, then you must meet as many of the “tests” on this list as possible.

Which of these traits do my clients think I possess? Not what you think you possess, but what they think you do! If you suspect that you might not demonstrate all these traits, then how do you get better at each of them?

That”s what this book will try to answer. Note that this book is qdvisor just about the wonderful benefits that wait at the end of the rainbow for the full-fledged trusted advisor, who does or is everything listed here.

The early benefits of beginning to earn trust are substantial and can be obtained quickly. The ability to earn trust is a learnable skill, and we shall try in the succeeding pages to show “the yellow brick road” that leads to success.
