Robin Dreeke has mastered the art of building trust.

Dreeke, who has worked in the counterintelligence division of the FBI for 19 years, is the author of The Code of Trust: An American Counterintelligence Expert’s Five Rules to Lead and Succeed.

His new book focuses on five main points:

  1. Suspend Your Ego
  2. Be Non-judgemental
  3. Honor Reason
  4. Validate Others
  5. Be Generous

Building on these points, Dreeke walks readers through how to inspire other people’s trust in an authentic way.

Though Dreeke works in an industry where trust seems counterintuitive, building trusting relationships has allowed Dreeke to do his job to the best of his ability.

But the things that Dreeke has learned while working as the head of the elite Behavioral Analysis Program for the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division apply to day-to-day situations. Building trust changes the dynamic of any relationship, whether that be at a workplace or someone’s home.

Despite his career, which often brings him in contact with tricky people, Dreeke has actually had the toughest time building trust with his daughter, who is wary of his trust-building tactics.

The Code of Trust is based upon Dreeke’s experience over 28 years of federal service, building on a system that Dreeke developed while doing field work with the FBI.
