Your Road To Yes!

We all know trust is important, but we don’t all know the tangible ways to build trust in ourselves and with others. Your Road to Yes! proves that trust is your biggest competitive advantage, and trust is the antidote to every toxic relationship and workplace environment. It is everyone’s responsibility to build a space where trust and belonging are present, which only happens through effective communication. You build high levels of trust with others when you can answer yes to the following three questions:

  • Do I take people with me along the journey?
  • Do I create a safe space for people to open up?
  • Do I make people feel less alone in the world?

Answering “YES!” results from you communicating with transparency, tact, and togetherness. Trust is the driving factor in your ability to lead, love, and communicate effectively in every relationship, and trust is built one yes at a time. This book is your roadmap on how to make that possible.

"Justin powerfully illustrates why if you want to be a great leader of others, you must first be a great leader of yourself. Bold New You provides a refreshing perspective on leadership and the interactive exercises empower leaders to authentically know themselves so they can play bigger. This book should be a part of every leadership development program!"
