Honesty and your teams feelings...

Are you a team leader? It's important to be honest with your team. Keeping information from them, either good or bad, is not a good policy. You are establishing a trust relationship. That requires honesty.

Sometimes people will get angry or upset with you for not presenting the information in a certain way. It is not your job to make them happy - that's their job. It is your job to make sure they can do what they need in the environment they need, them liking you is nice but irrelevant.

I strive to have people working for me trust me, not like me. I don't second guess them, I trust they give me the same respect.
