Honesty at Work

Engagement Description


We all get into situations where we don’t think it’s ok to be honest at work. And, most of us consider ourselves to be honest people. However, when we’re in an environment where we feel the need to be highly strategic, we can develop a habit of hiding, exaggerating or distorting to meet expectations. That’s pretty effective for R&D or marketing, but not as much for building trusting relationships. You may have struggled to reconcile yours and your employer’s agendas at some point. If so, this video module may give you some new ways to manage competing priorities.

Learning Objectives

  1. Increase your awareness of how honest you are. 
  2. Discover why honesty is important to you, personally. 
  3. Identify what helps you be more comfortable being honest and try it with someone you trust.
