Seattle University and Global Visionaries, the Seattle-based nonprofit that empowers young people to become global leaders, bring leadership expert and author, Amy Lyman, to Seattle to discuss her book, The Trustworthy Leader. Lyman is co-founder of the Great Place to Work Institute, a leading global organizational development firm that is also recognized for producing FORTUNE'S 100 Best Companies to Work For list each year (2012 list is to be released on January 19th).

THE TRUSTWORTHY LEADER addresses the question: How does a leader's trustworthiness propel an organization to excellence?

                                                                            ADMISSION IS FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Through extensive interviews, including with Seattle-based business leaders from REI & Perkins Coie, author Amy Lyman explores the tangible benefits derived from trust-based relationships and explores the personal stories and transition moments that made some of today's Trustworthy Leaders understand their role as leader the way the presently do.

Praise for The Trustworthy Leader from William C. Taylor, cofounder, Fast Company and author, Practically Radical: "In a world with too many brands, too many fads, and too many exaggerated claims, trust is the one business resource in short supply. In this wise book, filled with well-told stories and compelling personal portraits, Amy Lyman shows what it takes for leaders to build trust at every level and how powerful an organization can become when trust becomes the tie that binds. You can't be special and compelling in the marketplace unless you create something special and compelling in the workplace. This must-read book shows you how to do just that."

Lyman has spent close to thirty years studying organizations and groups, seeking to understand what helps some groups to thrive while others stall and fall apart.  Her current focus is on the key contributions of Trustworthy Leaders to the creation and support of successful groups and organizations. In 1991, Lyman co-founded the Great Place to Work Institute, a San Francisco based research and consulting firm with over 40 affiliate offices around the world. Lyman advises individual leaders and organizations interested in understanding and enhancing the practice of trustworthy behaviors. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania and her B.S. from the University of California, Davis. She began her consulting work while a research fellow at the Wharton Center for Applied Research at Penn.


Global Visionaries thanks the Office of the Associate Provost for Academic Achievement at Seattle University for sponsoring the February Author Series event.
