Throughout the book, she examines why candor is crucial in today’s world—and how it functions as the main element for leadership, trust, results and relationships. Using humor, anecdotes and examples of both good and poor candor in leadership, Eberhardt delivers a renewed understanding of how direct speaking causes great velocity and encourages more fun and success at work.

“Companies with leaders who communicate directly and honestly consistently outperform the competition. So why is candor so uncommon?”

This is Nancy Eberhardt’s question to leaders and teams around the country—and the reason she authored her new book, Uncommon Candor. She knows lack of candor is the number-one reason for miscommunication and avoidable problems in relationships. People don’t usually get the results they desire when they use unproductive conversation.  Failing to be straightforward communicators creates a lack of productivity and satisfaction.

With her inspirational and instructive tone, Eberhardt serves as a mentor for today’s leaders and managers, showing them just what is possible when they transform how their team communicates. She shares the stories of leaders who have learned from their experiences, and of her own evolution in the value of candor, illustrating the power of straightforward communication and what we miss when it is lacking. “It’s time that we create a culture of candor in our workplaces and in our lives,” said Eberhardt.
