Telling the truth and acting accordingly is a good virtue and a measure of ethics and moral honour. Honesty is one of the best ways for an organization to achieve long-lasting success for its employees and customers. There is a huge difference between being honest and being transparent. Honesty is when you reveal what you feel needs to be known, while transparency is when others can’t see something that YOU feel they need to know but might not be appropriate or relevant.

As illustrated by Napoleon, the core value of a mastermind group is the synergy of motivation, idea exchange, energy, commitment and the willingness to learn and grow together. Members in a mastermind groups raise the bar by challenging each other to set goals, improve personal skills, business skills, brainstorm ideas and support each other with utmost respect and honesty.

WORK: Unmotivated? Disengaged? It's Your Fault and It's Time For Change! Employee engagement and motivation has always been an important aspect of the workplace which has a direct bearing on the performance and productivity of the workforce.

Christopher - When you're in an interview with a person who's asking questions and there's rapport established and there's a level of comfort, your answers are different or at least you respond differently than when you're behind a video.
