How to Say No When Your Boss Asks You to Exaggerate the Numbers (Ask Tigerhall)

Mar 3, 2022 | 7m

This Tigerhall listener’s manager keeps asking him to inflate and exaggerate the numbers, so it’ll look good to the external parties who will see them. The listener is uncomfortable with this and wants to say no, but doesn’t know how because his manager has no issue with this practice as everyone else in the industry does the same thing. Janaka Madawela draws from his governance and risk management experience to offer advice on how to get out of this smartly.
