Since we were kids, we’ve been told that honesty is the best policy.  Kids certainly have no problem telling us exactly what is on their minds.

And yet, somewhere along the way, the notion of the little white lie gets normalized. 

Through his research and 30 year track record as Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Navalent, Ron Carucci’s work has shown that, just like when we were kids, honesty is a foundational element to leadership organizational success.

On this episode of the Workplace Communication Podcast, Ron shares research and insights from his brand-new book, To Be Honest: Lead with the Power of Truth, Justice and Purpose to help you identify the significant cost of dishonesty in the workplace and what you can do to repair and rebuild the cracks.
