#101: Robin Dreeke is former head of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Behavioral Analysis Program.

His primary role, at the time, was to thwart foreign spies and  recruit American spies. That's not an easy task.

To accomplish this, Dreeke needed to gain people's trust -- even when they had no reason to trust him.

He spent years developing and testing systems on how to develop trust with others in high-stakes situations.

Today, he joins us on this podcast to describe The Code of Trust, a set of practices that he developed during his days as a high-ranking counterintelligence expert.


This system is based on 5 simple principles:

  1. Suspend Your Ego
  2. Be Nonjudgmental
  3. Honor Reason
  4. Validate Others
  5. Be Generous


Tune in to hear him elaborate on each principal, and discuss how this applies to anyone who wants stronger, more trustworthy relationships at work and home.
