Centered Leaders Tell The Truth

Can you reduce the lies you tell?

No offense intended. I'm not calling you a liar. What I've heard is that we've all lied. I know I've lied. I'm not proud of it one bit, and do not intend to lie anymore.

Even when the truth is hard. Even when people say it might hurt their feelings. Telling the truth, with respect, with understanding, with openness, with compassion -- that's what centered leaders do.

A lie spoken in kindness is still a lie. 

We can do better than that. We can learn to deal with the truth.
