Straight, honest, no nonsense communication in organizations today is more rare than common. Whether it’s fear of reprisal, natural timidity, or not wanting to hurt someone’s feelings, many of us avoid telling the truth when the truth needs to be told. The same applies to many of those who work for us. The cost of such reticence can be high. If managers can’t get honest feedback from their subordinates, they, like the emperor in the fable of the Emperor’s New Clothes, will make foolish decisions. If employees can’t get honest feedback from their managers, they don’t improve, and their poor performance devalues the organization. If team members feel uncomfortable expressing contrary opinions, the status quo never gets challenged and creativity dies. Based on Larry Johnson’s book, ‘Absolute Honesty: Building A Corporate Culture That Values Straight Talk and Rewards Integrity’ Larry shows you how to enhance your leadership skills and how to create a strong culture in organization by establishing a new standard of communication — a standard that encourages creativity through candid discussions, frank expression of ideas, and healthy debate. A standard that tells the truth, doesn’t mince words, and is guided by a clear sense of right and wrong. PRIORITY:3END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
