Whether we like it or not, deception is something we have to deal with almost every day. We are bombarded with advertisements for great deals, but the catch is always in the fine print. Deception has become a norm but does that mean honesty has ceased to exist? A Grand Debate takes a look at honesty versus deception by delving deeper into research done by professionals in the scientific and medical fields. Written in a conversational style, two people go head to head in a discussion to prove which is more prevalent in society today. Who will win the final battle?

Middle school is hard—but it's way harder when a fairy godmother puts you under a truth-telling spell! June has always been a people-pleaser, telling harmless little lies to make her friends and family happy. She's convinced being honest about her feelings will only hurt the people she loves! Until, out of nowhere, a secret fairy godmother appears to "bless" her with the ability to only tell the truth! Seriously?! As if June didn’t have enough to worry about! Now, June has no choice but to be honest about how she feels. And the truth is: what June feels is stressed out. Middle school is no joke—between field hockey, friend drama, and her parents' high expectations, June feels so overwhelmed that sometimes it’s hard to breathe. When everything spirals out of control, will June find freedom in telling the whole truth and nothing but—or is she destined to battle the curse for the rest of her life?

What a bizarre title. But it is interesting isn't it? Doesn't it make you ask, "What could this be all about"? Well the truth is it's not about dogs at all; it's about leadership and honesty. Nevertheless dogs are a useful metaphor. You see, dogs are the closest thing we can find when searching for examples of uncompromising honesty. Dishonesty is not part of their DNA. In contrast, the problem for many leaders today is that at some level "most people lie". This may seem like a provocative statement but it's true, even though most of the time we do not even know we are doing it. Some, including many renowned psychologists, would even say that at some level we need to lie to survive. Do we? In a world of business, sports and political Watergates and scandals that has even culminated in Papal resignations against a background of "vatileaks", we seem to suffer from a paradoxical scenario. We find ourselves contrasting the lack of honesty that brought down many of our business and sporting figures as exemplified by the likes of Madoff, Lance Armstrong and Oscar Pistorius (to name a few), with the apparent total honesty of leaders such as the Dalai Lama, Kofi Anan and even Richard Branson or Steve Jobs. We all know that whilst some leaders command respect, others do not. Some leaders have willing followers, whilst others are followed through coercion. Some may lose their followers, whilst others should never have any. And some allow their egos to block trust, whilst others are dealers in trust. This book is therefore a journey into one of the hottest topics for leaders today - honest leadership. But this is not just another leadership book, or simply a nice story. It is about honest leaders changing the world. Now that's a big claim. But its deserved, because this book sniffs and scratches around the undergrowth searching for the real meaning of honesty and leadership and finishes up helping you uncover your own truth. And with the aid of a remarkably simple idea - the Eight Axioms of Honest Leadership - this book will provide you with the tools and skills to enable you to identify, train and maybe even tame your own leadership approach and help you to become a "top dog".
