Optics and Integrity
Truth must be the foundation of our lives. The slippery slope of public relations for the protection of image can cost leaders their integrity in a slow subtle fade until the lies they tell are only believed by themselves. The fear of what people think is probably the largest source of compromise for leaders and their teams. When faced with the choice, would we rather look good or be good? Being good in the face of failure and disappointment is simply the honest and transparent ownership of that failure.
