Have you ever told a lie? Even a white lie so you wouldn’t hurt someone’s feelings?
We tell lies to one another to avoid seemingly uncomfortable situations and generally we are not trying to be malicious when we tell them.
Lying, or being phony, often seems like the easy way out, but recent research shows that being real- being honest- is what is takes to be successful as a group or individual.
Being honest, or living authentically, requires us to be vulnerable and to share how we feel. But once you get past the scary part, the rewards of honesty can be enormous.
Are you ready to create trust, confidence, and team unity by being honest and speaking authentically?
