Honest or soft-spoken: What role does honesty play as a leadership factor?

#231 – Honesty

„I think we need to be honest and authentic as leaders. Yes, absolutely. We need authenticity as a leadership principle in our company.”
We often hear statements like this or similar when we start to transform our clients’ leadership culture.

So far, so good and so true. But the dilemma is: Everyone wants honesty, but no one can handle the truth.
