Drawing on the surprising results of the author’s American Truth Survey, The Truth Advantage is the ultimate guide to putting your mind at rest, getting your life back on track, and making the most of every personal, social, and business relationship. Studies have shown that most of us lie once or twice a day and deceive at least thirty people every week. We pay a high price for our lies - the mental energy it takes to concoct and remember them, the emotional stress caused by fear of getting caught in one, and the damage to our reputation when we do get caught - but it doesn’t have to be that way. In The Truth Advantage, prominent trial attorney and Fox News Channel legal analyst Lis Wiehl reveals that telling the truth is easier than lying. Telling the truth makes other people respect you and encourages them to be truthful with you. Honesty forges deep, powerful, and life-changing bonds that make every part of your life happier and more rewarding. In this transformative guide, Lis Wiehl helps you become more forthright, less evasive, and true to your word. Using straightforward techniques that have helped her achieve positive results using truth in her own life as a mother and TV personality, she introduces The 7 Keys to a Happy and Fulfilling Life. The Truth Advantage shows you how to become someone you’d like to have as a friend, as a colleague, and as a partner by discovering how to listen, get your facts straight, and choose the right time to deliver important truths. Nobody’s perfect, but for many people, the most difficult kind of truth telling is the admission that you have done something wrong or made a mistake. Citing examples from everyday life to very public scandals, Wiehl argues that honesty is always the best policy and gives practical advice on how to respond when confronted with your own misdeeds. Some people say hurtful things in public and excuse themselves by claiming they’re just “being honest.” Wiehl shares her time tested grou 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lis Wiehl.

From Erin Brockovich to Enron, whistleblowers who 'challenge abuses of power that betray the public trust' have proven to be an unfortunate necessity in modern business culture. Their efforts to report crimes, fraud, and dangers to public health and safety have saved millions of lives and billions of dollars of shareholder value - and had we heeded the warnings of whistleblowers, perhaps disasters such as the Bernie Madoff scandal and the Lehman Brothers meltdown could have been averted. Recent federal legislation in finance and health reform have cemented legal protections and mechanisms for whistleblowing. This book provides a thorough guide and history to the whistleblower's legal rights. The ultimate survival guide, it provides advice on getting help and finding allies, warns that retaliation is often the reward for 'committing the truth' and shows how to weather the storm. With extensive legal texts, sample letters, resources, and information on upcoming whistleblower reforms, this is the ultimate source on the subject.
