Be honest: do your actions match your values? 🤔 During a dinner in New York with a mighty group of leadership thinkers—people I consider my friends—this question came up.

Ron Carucci discussed the importance of honesty, especially in leadership, in his new book, “To Be Honest.” He was kind of enough to share the following with me, Dorie Clark, Alisa Cohn, and Eric Shurenberg:

Ron shares a few questions to get you started in the video below.
