Last week I was invited to appear on Good Day DC to celebrate National Honesty Day. We had a great conversation about honesty and the impact it has on both personal and professional relationships.
Here are just a few of the things that we talked about during the interview:
- Why the unsaid is often more harmful than the things that are being said
- The reason the “sandwich method”, often used to deliver criticism, is manipulative and what to do instead
- Why appreciation is something we need to practice on a much more regular basis
Although National Honesty Day is now behind us, we want to encourage you to create moments of honesty every day. Getting the unsaid said, appreciating each other more and being honest in our communication will lead to more successful relationships and business interactions.
Watch the interview and, once you’ve had a chance to tune in, Tweet your thoughts to me at @Steven_Gaffney with the hashtag #HonestyEveryDay.
