Key Points From This Episode:
Even though it often seems like honesty is the last resort, it should be the first place we go.
Tell the truth as you know it from your perspective, in your own words.
If you don’t know something, say you don't know it.
Admit you are wrong when you are, and move on!
No one person or group is ever fully right; it's your job to be fair.
Truth is subjective and is framed by our perspectives.
Be genuine and earnest, and people will respect you.
Honesty is always your best defense!
