Please Lie To Me
Thompson Barton’s work has been focused on our fear of one another and the impact that has on our lives and in our work spaces. Make no mistake, fear is alive and well and rests on our usual agreement: “Please lie to me.” This agreement is informal, unconscious, and non-verbal. It is also self-perpetuating. As a result, we continue to live in fear and mistrust of one another.
This is no one’s fault and everyone’s problem.
Please Lie to Me makes unflinching eye contact with fear. Please Lie to Me defines what it takes to liberate you, your workforce, and your organization from being hostage to fear.
Please Lie to Me takes on fear in the workplace by using a New Agreement to replace business as usual. Implementing this New Agreement establishes Accountable Consciousness, which transforms the culture and the business. Please Lie to Me challenges business owners and leaders to take back the control of their cultures and organizations. In so doing, employees become fully engaged and the organization will reach currently unattainable heights of effectiveness and productivity.
