Thank you for your candour…

I have been spending a lot of time recently reflecting on honesty… it seems to me that there is a deficit in the honesty that exists between leaders and their teams in many organisations.

As I have reflected on this I don’t think that dishonesty lies behind this lack of candour. It seems that as leaders we are just afraid to have honest and straight conversations for fear of a) upsetting people; b) fear of implications; c) fear of being seen as a “boss” with all it’s negative connotations.
