We are not always honest - to ourselves and to others. Sometimes it can be right not to be completely honest. Being honest does not mean we have to say everything we see and think. Being honest can also mean that another person needs to be protected. Being honest means being fair to yourself and not lying when to others. If we want to enter into meaningful relationships with other people and with those we work with, then we need to be honest.
In coaching and mentoring we examine factors that make honesty difficult and we explore how to make honesty effective.
Coaching and supervision requires a very special form of honesty to get things moving and to bring about change for the better. In our work as coaches and mentors, our clients expect us to be honest.
