Moment #34: The Power of Transparent Leadership
Moment #34 // They say that the best disinfectant is sunlight, and I'm a huge believer in that principle. If my direct reports in CS Energy heard it once they heard it a thousand times: transparency is everything.
But just how much transparency should you give to your people? Issues of trust, accountability, confidentiality, and context all play a part in how much transparency it’s reasonable to offer. Like many areas of leadership, it can be a complex balance!
I wrote an article on this subject for Harvard Business Review earlier this year, which is worth a read. It’s titled How Transparent Should You Be With Your Team?
You can also take a deeper dive into these insights by listening to Ep.207: Leadership Transparency.
