On Lies:

Sooner or later every leader will be lied to by a team member or someone in the followship. A lie misrepresents facts or reality on one level, but tells a deeper truth on another level. It is that level, the deeper one, that invites a more profound attention and treatment. Did they lie because they fear you too much? Because they are desperate to keep this job to pay medical bills? Because they feel unequipped to deal with certain facts or realities? Because they harbor a dark disposition that will continue to deceive and exploit? Lying is serious sin and should be addressed as such, but realize people lie for diversiform reasons. Some of those reasons are treatable and transformable, provided they are growth-oriented and you are redemption-oriented.
