2018 Session | Radical Honesty: ​How to Tell the Truth (Even When No One Wants to Hear It)

Click Play below to listen to this session from the 2018 conference.

Even if you believe that honesty is the best policy, we don’t always say what we really mean, especially in the workplace. Talking openly about issues and challenges can go against our desire to be nice and make one another feel good.

Part of being an adult is being able to hear and tell the truth. In this workshop, the author of Powerful Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility explains why radical honesty is the only way to ensure that you are trusted and understood. Participants will learn about different styles of delivery, systems for offering feedback, and how leaders can model key behavior like admitting fault.  Read More
