There are a couple of flaws in our thinking about “those people” who dare to speak up and make a difference in the world. We tend to assume they are fearless, and that is how they do what they do- FALSE! They just come up with a process to determine when it is worth taking RISKS in the service of living their VALUES.

Really the only people who should be able to dupe us are sociopaths, and they only make up about 1-3% of the population. So again- how come we fail to recognize so many lies? Let’s look at a real life example… I was recently invited to be the keynote speaker at an international conference. For those who are not in the co
