This singular capability will make or break your leaders’ effectiveness

The most important skill of any leader is their ability to have deeply truthful conversations about the real issues in ways that improve people’s lives and organizational performance.

“We can’t solve any problem that we can’t talk about honestly and openly.”


– Todd Holzman

Candor is hard for everyone

Even the most experienced, intelligent, sincere leaders struggle with getting to candor.

Why? Because nearly five decades of research demonstrates that an unconscious, overprotective program leads all people to be too aggressive, passive, or passive-aggressive in the moments that matter.

All of this compromises…

  • Leadership effectiveness
  • Organizational agility
  • Business performance
  • Human health and happiness

But the benefits of closing the candor gap are enormous.

Candor is the core capability all good leadership is built upon

The development of this capability in your leaders and organization is one of the most important things you can do as a senior executive, learning leader, or HR business partner.

Why? Because leadership is fundamentally about having deeply truthful conversational about the real issues and opportunities in ways that make a positive impact on people and the world.

Most leadership programs fail because the development of this capability isn’t prioritized. Most leaders and organizations struggle to live up to their full potential because they haven’t figured out a way to unlock the power of candor — in themselves and others.
