About Us

The Beginning

Know Honesty was founded in Grand Rapids in 2016 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 the Know Honesty Movement, helping organizations, professionals, and individuals break down the divide and experience real communication.

Who We Are

Everyone needs, and can have, a simple and effective approach to get quick, sustainable results. Ken’s relentless pursuit of finding the organization’s true condition has helped improved the lives of over 300 owners and leaders, thousands of employees, and over 60 organizations.
