008 Truth or Consequences? Teleseminar Discussion • PODCAST [Refresh]



Truth or Consequences Screen Beans Art © A Bit Better Corporation

Integrity is usually a major conversation when I coach groups of executives. It almost always comes up in the context of arriving at the meeting on time or returning promptly from breaks.1 This leads to a discussion of consequences, by which people mean punishments for not being on time: fines, humiliation, etc. This opens a powerful examination of monitoring, enforcement, and integrity throughout the organization.



This podcast is a teleseminar discussion of one of my favorite blog posts, Truth or Consequences: Beyond the punishment model. Managing your employees with straight talk and accountability vs. punishment.

You are NOT different.

You CAN make a difference.

To be human is to wonder, “Why?” We are addicted to cause and effect, to explanations and understanding, to discovering sequences of events, to bolstering our illusions of control.

    • Control of our thoughts.
    • Control of our bodies.
    • Control of our diseases.

For as long as I can remember, everyone greeted news of (more…)
