Building High-Trust CommUNITY argues that America's conflicts result from a distrust in society and politics. It begins by examining people and trust in a historical context covering the period from Abraham Lincoln to the COVID pandemic. The book reviews trust at an individual level and explains our ability to innovate and solve problems to arrive at societal trust. After these concepts are established, the practical aspects of cooperation at personal, emotional, and social levels are discussed. Pamela Shockley-Zalabak and Sherwyn Morreale support their ideas with real examples. They draw on their own experiences, political, and couple studies. Most of their arguments for positive change use five fundamental principles that they describe in clear terms: competence, openness and honesty, concern for others, reliability, and identification. Using these, we can create a more stable and trusting society.
Pamela Shockley-Zalabak and Sherwyn Morreale achieved fantastic results from their research. They show a great concern for current problems, which is why Building High-Trust CommUNITY is useful for anyone looking to make a change in their life. We have gone through situations that no one anticipated, like the pandemic. It affected the family, work, and emotional condition of many people. It is difficult to overcome these catastrophes as individuals, but as a group, we can make improvements. The book is written from a positive and enlightening perspective. It shows that change in society is a collective responsibility. Sometimes it may seem that the world is corrupt, but we have the choice to be better and set an example for our loved ones.
