Let's face it. 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.

This webinar shows team leaders, supervisors, and managers, even those working remotely, how to build a team culture where people express themselves clearly and honestly. Where feedback flows and transparency rules.

Why Should You Attend

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 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 wrong. 

Objectives of the Presentation 

You will gain an understanding of the Six Laws of Absolute Honesty:

 » Tell the truth – even when it's hard
 » Tackle the problem – even when it's hard
 » Disagree and commit – no whining allowed
 » Welcome the truth – even though you don’t want to hear it
 » Reward the messenger – so you don’t become a naked emperor

You will also be better able to:

 » Communicate more effectively in a straight, honest manner
