A story about a hidden lie!
In the story; "The Emperor's New Clothes", being too close to the actual problem, the Emperor was unable to see the truth that the clothes sold to him were in reality nonexistent...
Those who served the Emperor, were either unable to see or afraid to admit the truth lest they be deemed unworthy.
This charade went on until a young child pointed out that the Emperor was in fact not wearing any clothes and suddenly the Emperor knew he had literally been taken to the cleaners!
Like the Emperor in the story, as business leaders, we are sometimes mislead by those we trust to help manage and grow our business...
Are you wearing new clothes?
