IN THIS SUMMARY
In today’s world, Transparency – acting with candor, disclosure, integrity, and honesty – is increasingly linked to both survival and success. Not only does Transparency enhance individual and organizational performance, but it also has the potential to tap into previously unthinkable levels of collective wisdom.
In Transparency, authors Warren Bennis, Daniel Goleman, James O’Toole, and Patricia Ward Biederman use three essays to explore the complexities of Transparency and reflect on becoming a transparent leader, working within a transparent company, and thriving in an increasingly transparent world.
It is clear that our world is becoming increasingly transparent, and it is equally clear that there is no turning back. The technologies that have facilitated this change are here to stay. As a result, it is easy to anticipate only a further emphasis on Transparency. Given this state of affairs, individuals and organizations who maintain a “culture of candor” will hold a competitive edge.
