Question: "A co-worker in a position of great responsibility has a very bad habit of lying. She is amazing at her job, represents the organization well and her staff likes working for her— except for the fact that they often don’t know when she is or isn’t telling the truth. She even lies when telling the truth would serve her much better. One concern is that she will occasionally stretch the truth with statistics, and if she’s caught doing that, it could harm the credibility of the organization. Other than that, she is a wonderful employee and co-worker, and no one wants to see her fired. People who have confronted her in the past have sacrificed their relationships with her. Has anyone experienced a similar situation? Any advice for an optimal outcome?" —Oklahoma
