The hardest thing for a manager to do is…

… tell the truth.Hardest thing to do, tell the truth

It’s one of the hardest things to share and the one of the hardest things to hear, but the one thing everyone, no matter what, really wants to know.

Depending on our level of emotional and social awareness we will create the appropriate time, space and words to communicate our intention and expectations. Note that I didn’t say find the time. As a manager you have to take charge in this space. It takes courage to tell the truth and act on it.

If you could tell one person the truth that would make the biggest impact, who would it be and what would you say?
