Author John Blakey believes our lack of trust in politicians derives from our language
In his new year speech, the labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says he understands the lack of trust in politicians and the EU that led to the Brexit vote. Trust, in politics, economists and business, has perhaps never been such an important issue as it is today - nor indeed perhaps so low among the general public. But where has this lack of faith come from? And what can be done to get it back? According to my next guest it's not just our actions that can cause distrust- the language we use is as important. John Blakey is a CEO Coach and author of The Trusted Executive - Nine leadership habits that inspire results, relationships and reputation.
