Executive Coaching – 3 Keys to Being a Hero… It’s Possible (4 of 4)

3 Keys to being a Hero…. It’s Possible (Part 4 of 4)

People understand that your words are truth


So, we have talked about how to be a hero.  This applies to your work, your family, and your friendships, it applies to anyone. First, it was knowing that other people don’t think the way you do. That can be a blessing or a curse. It’s up to you. Second, we talked about ‘having peoples’ back,’ protecting and defending the people who are important to you.

Now, let’s talk about truth. Being truthful is not an event. It’s not a process. It’s a way of life. When you speak truth all the time, you develop a reputation for consistency and fairness.


As an executive coach, I will tell my clients:  in the working world, consistency is next to godliness.  You must be fair and consistent with your people.   You must be consistent in the words you say.  You can’t let one person leave early for a dog obedience class (because you love dogs) and hold the cat-lover back from that emergency trip to the veterinarian (because it’s only a cat).team-brenda


Consistency means people learn what to expect from you, and learn to trust you.

Fairness means you are being reasonable instead of emotional.


To be a hero, you must speak truth.  That doesn’t mean you have to be perfect. It just means that you find truth, and then speak it.
