Building A “Truth Telling” Organization
Businesses thrive on facts and information to get the job done. However, while company cultures prize honesty, it’s remarkably hard for business leaders to get at the truth. Employees are afraid to say what’s on their minds, for fear of disagreeing with popular opinion or challenging the status quo. Since it’s impossible to make smart changes without understanding reality, many times companies hire external consultants to come tell them what their organization already knows but is afraid to say. After countless dollars and time is spent, the consultants leave and the organization reverts to the pre-existing state – where truth telling is the commodity in shortest supply. In this refreshing keynote, Mindy Mackenzie provides actionable advice for fostering a truth-telling culture that gives a kick-start to profitability, productivity, and morale. Audience members will learn how to become more effective and courageous message-givers and receivers, revamping old communication norms and enabling leaders to drive meaningful change.
