I realize that this statement and topic may strike a nerve, it certainly did with me. I was talking with a client the other day, and in recounting a recent conversation he had with his boss, it occurred to me that he wasn’t completely telling me the truth.  Now as an executive coach, this is not the first time I’ve been ‘lied to’.   I am frequently in the position of helping clients face various [...]
