  1. All people unintentionally compromise candor when its needed most

  2. Unconscious programming causes us to behave in these ways

  3. Almost all people are blind to this fact

You Have a Candor Gap…

and You Don’t Even Know It

Even the most experienced, intelligent, sincere leaders struggle with getting to candor. It’s a universal challenge we’re largely unaware of, but it’s costing us A LOT.

Regardless of their background, seniority, or previous training, your leaders inability to get to candor is compromising…

  • Organizational Effectiveness
  • People’s Well-Being
  • Business Performance

But if it’s so important why does this gap exist?

It’s NOT Our Principles.
It’s Our Programming.

How important do you think it is to be candid, curious, compassionate, and collaborative as a leader? 

I know VERY, right?!

But over 5 decades of research shows that when things get uncomfortable or tense, most of these noble principles go out the window. 

In the moments that matter most an overprotective program takes over—to our detriment and the detriment of the organizations within which we lead. 

However, all of us can transcend our programming and master candor.

Good Leadership Requires Candor

Being able to get to candor is the core capability all good leadership depends upon. It is the ability to have truthful conversations in ways that deepen trust while also driving progress on the real issues.

Candor is critical because we can’t solve problems we can’t talk about openly and honestly. And, we can’t make a lasting impact if we’re burning relationships along the way in the name of progress. 

Instead, when we embrace the challenge of treating every conversation as a collaborative search for the truth in order to do good in the world, our results and relationships can only improve.

Candor deserves your respect. 

It deserves your attention. 

It deserves to be prioritized.
