HP Sugartone entry no2 comes from Mairead Kelly. Are you a people pleaser? Do you go out of your way to be nice to everybody in the hope that they will like you? Does it work for you? Or are you so busy pleasing everybody that you’ve no time to notice whether they do or not? Sometimes it’s better to not please a client but rather to be bluntly honest in their best interests, even at the cost of upsetting them. This is a brave entry from a brave lady, give it some sweets (votes)luv.

Mairead, another brave post, I'm starting to really like your style. As I get older (& hopefully more mature) I am starting to realise that there are people I want to work & people I don't. The ability to have an open & honest discussion with clients & for them to be able to return the favour without insecurity & the usual BS is something I now cherish in people. Great great post.

Some of the best life lessons come from people - family, friends & co-workers - telling the truth. Maybe it hurts for a minute, but the lesson can last a lifetime.

@Businessavante - absolutely!! I've often heard "the truth hurts" said as an excuse to lie, however I believe that lying hurts more and does much more damage. It also brings into question the type of person who would lie rather than face a truth, what else are they hiding from & do I really want to deal with them regularly.

@Nialldevitt I've been where you are and I've come to the conclusion that life is too short to waste on dishonesty and deceit. My job is to help people "bring their best potential to the surface" - it's Encouraging Excellence's tag line, I would not be able to do that if honesty and truthfulness were not basic core values that I live by.
