. . . all good, logical reasons to avoid honesty.
Unfortunately this inclination to avoid the truth is self-reinforcing. As children we learn that avoiding the truth saves trouble (Did you break that?... Nope).
Fast forward to adulthood.
As we grow up we often fail to notice that we have grown in stature and that we have a voice with more authority...and yet we still worry about getting into trouble.
Here's where we come in. We show leaders and their teams what it's like to adopt honesty as a quicker way of getting to the solution, a shortcut to getting difficult things done.
What we do works quickly and it doesn't take long before our clients start to talk about things that they had historically avoided.
Soon, small examples of openness in the group grow in frequency and magnitude.
