The Business Benefits Of Speaking With Care And Candour by Dene Rossouw published on 2012/05/15 05:10:39 +0000 Have you been in a meeting where a behaviour by a colleague, employee or leader needed to be addressed? Have you worked with a team where everybody went through the motions and continued to avoid surfacing an issue until it eventually became an undiscussable? Speaking with care and candour involves showing care and respect for the person while at the same time being absolutely clear on the issues. Speaking with true and respectful candour is not criticism; it's about focusing on the issue and not the person. It's communicating authentically without doing any damage.
