In Business And In Life:

The Shortest Distance Between Two Points Is Straight Talk!

Candor doesn’t necessarily come naturally. It requires practice, but one can learn the

behaviors and authentic ways of speaking that tap into the power of candor. With her

executive experience, Nancy Eberhardt knows how to help people build success from the

inside out. She coaches them to understand their passions, identify a vision, and follow

through with velocity. By learning what candor is and is not, you can tap into the immense

potential that honest and helpful communication has to offer. By implementing succinct and

direct talk into your team’s culture, you can participate in open conversations that unify your

team through constructive feedback. If you feel you are working harder than ever but falling

short on your desired results, Uncommon Candor will give you a fresh and no-nonsense

approach for moving the needle.

Strategic thinking and execution planning only work when leaders talk straight about what

is working and what is not. Nancy Eberhardt’s Uncommon Candor is a key component to

getting uncommon results.
