What if being honest with ourselves and others made us be better business leaders?
That is the issue this week’s guest, Ron Carucci, addresses in his book, To Be Honest.
The origins of his book are fascinating. He put hundreds of his firm’s past client interviews through IBM Watson’s AI engine to uncover patterns associated with business success.
He found that honesty was crucial. He discovered that just four factors could make organisations 16 times more likely to have people tell the truth, behave fairly, and serve a greater good.

In this episode, we talk:

  • How BS slowly kills businesses
  • How honesty is a muscle
  • Going beyond engagement surveys
  • The secret of Microsoft’s turnaround
  • Ron’s path to getting more honest
