Please Lie to Me takes on fear in the workplace by establishing a new agreement to replace business as usual.  Based on the book of the same name, Russ Salzer and Melissa Borowicz will explore implementing Accountable Communication to transform culture and business.  Please Lie to Me challenges business owners and leaders to take back control of their cultures and organizations.  In doing so, employees become fully engaged and the organization will reach previously unattainable heights of effectiveness and productivity.

Please Lie to Me is a reference to the lies we accept from those we work with in order to maintain the status quo and avoid honest feedback, which we may not like.  Unfortunately, this is also what keeps us from achieving higher levels of personal success and, ultimately, improved business results.  The work of Russ Salzer is highlighted in the book, Please Lie to Me, by Thompson Barton and Don White.  

Accolades for the presentation:

  • “I left the Please Lie to Me workshop feeling empowered to be the change I want to see in my workplace. “
  • “I’ve never taken the time to pinpoint my signs of defensiveness and their root fears.  Leaving the Please Lie to Me workshop, I’m compelled to wash those fears away and practice accountable openness!”
  • “It was both refreshing and eye opening to be in a room full of local leaders from various companies who ALL see the same fears in the workplace!”
  • “The Please Lie to Me workshop taught me the steps I can take to create an environment of trust in the workplace.”
