Yesterday JayKING and I had a long conversation about honesty, being transparent, and how it is difficult to remain in this posture. This morning, I was reading this article, from Phil Cookes blog, about meetings with honesty.

If you are not willing to ask and answer the hard questions, you probably are not truly willing to go to the next level in leadership, growth, development, or success. These questions hurt. They call out your insecurities. They force you to deal with problems and not glaze over them in an effort to create an artificial culture. It is more dangerous to NOT deal with these honest truths than it is to uncover them, deal with them, fix them (regardless of cost) and then move forward.
