‘The Trust Sketchbook’ is coming

Today is the last day of the Kickstarter Campaign for ‘The Trust Sketchbook‘, and i’m pleased to say that it’s been highly successful, for two reasons. First: it’s exceeded the target significantly, which gives me the freedom to explore new (and beautiful) production ideas, making it spiral bound, instead of glue bound, and increasing the number of pages. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, it’s been 30 days of rapid iteration of the idea itself. At the start, i had an idea, and now, at the end, i have a clear plan.

Kickstarting The Trust Sketchbook

Perhaps that’s typical of #WorkingOutLoud: you share the idea, you engage in the conversations, you evolve the idea, and you rapidly prototype it as you go. In thirty days, i’ve moved from drawing it digitally, with the Apple pen in the Paper app, to making it fully hand drawn in a Moleskine notebook, coloured by hand, and in parallel with that, i’ve analysed the early Landscape of Trust outputs, and generated this, the 12 Aspects of Trust that the Sketchbook will explore.

12 Aspects of Trust

I’m still positioning this as #WorkingOutLoud, as experimental work, hence my deliberate use of the ‘Zine approach. An experimental zine that i expect to rapidly iterate once it comes into being. Not a static, codified, formal book.

Social Leadership - my 1st 100 days

Excuse my excitement: i feel i’ve hit a productive streak. At the end of June, i’ll launch the new book on ‘Social Leadership: my 1st 100 days‘, itself a significant body of work, and alongside it, i feel i have a strong foundation of research and thinking around trust. All developed within the arms of the community. So thank you for your support, and i can’t wait to share the Sketchbook: i will continue to #WorkOutLoud as i start drawing the final 24 pages, probably in late June.
