Overcome the fear of speaking truth by learning to do it with love.

In a society where sensitivities take precedence over honesty, it can often feel impossible to openly speak your mind. From managing conflict resolution in the workplace to navigating differences at home, many issues remain unaddressed and unresolved when you cannot speak clearly, candidly, and truthfully for fear of negative consequences.

It’s time to learn how to speak the truth in love. In Candor, you’ll learn how truth and love together can unlock pathways to more effective leadership and relationships—even in a day and age when many remain silent for fear of speaking up. Discover how speaking with sensitive and effective candor can reshape your relationships and enable you to live a life of honesty and freedom.
