About Us

The Beginning

Know Honesty was founded in Grand Rapids in 2016 and was created in response to the absence of honesty in the workplace. Ken’s experience with business owners and leaders has led him to see how far we have fallen when it comes to real communication. Couple that dilemma with a society choosing disconnectedness over authentic connection and we have a much larger problem.

From day one, Ken and his team have been working diligently to create an honesty movement, helping organizations, professionals, and individuals break down the divide and experience real communication.

Everyone needs, and can have, a simple and effective approach to get quick, sustainable results.
