In business, when is it acceptable to lie? by Richard Friesen

Either or, black or white, good or evil. We “lie” all the time to some degree. The tone of our voice, the tilt of the head, and the use of fuzzy language can support good intentions and slide in degrees to total fabrication. We all “lie” to some small degree many times a day. The biggest and most damaging lie is to ourselves. I invite you to increase your self-awareness of your communications and just notice without judgment the transparency you offer. Become more intentional.
