Straight Talk

Straight Talk ImageStraight talk ― honest, no-nonsense communication ― in organizations today is rare. We may be reluctant to speak our minds for fear of reprisal or because we want to be nice. Yet the cost of such reticence can be high. If managers can’t get honest feedback from their employees, they make poor decisions. If employees can’t get honest feedback from their managers, they don’t improve, and their poor performance costs the organization time and money.

Straight Talk is a one-day on-site workshop that delivers effective tools to assess your corporate culture and create strategies to increase honest communication and open dialogue.

The workshop is based on the Six Laws of Absolute Honesty:

  • Tell the truth
  • Tackle the problems
  • Disagree and commit
  • Welcome the truth
  • Reward the messenger
  • Build a platform of integrity

Who will benefit from Straight Talk? Every member of your organization
