Cheeky Half Episode (15): Diplomacy, lies and leadership.

Have you ever found yourself in a position where a confidential or sensitive message you need to convey somehow morphs into a set of well-meaning lies? We confess, we have. And sometimes, despite our best intentions, we just haven’t worked out how to navigate that slippery slope.

Paul KG talk about some of these moments, not always something to be proud of, but nevertheless a common leadership experience. We are keen to hear from you. How do you handle conversations where the lines between diplomacy, confidentiality and outright lies become blurred.

We’d love to hear what you thought of this conversation. Is this a topic worth pursuing in one of our longer monthly episodes?
