Being “Brutally Honest” is Hard but Necessary

When I was on the Agricultural Economics faculty at Cornell University, I was asked to speak at an agronomy professional meeting.  I was given the challenging assignment of assessing their research and extension programs.  I worked hard on my assignment and provided what I thought was a balanced assessment. After the presentation one of my Cornell agronomy colleagues congratulated me and then said: “You were brutally honest!”  What he meant was that I was fair in my assessment, but did NOT hold back, or in the jargon “pull any punches,” with my concerns.
