The skill, Being Transparent, is a key component of Developing Authentic Trust. In the Xponents’ workshop Context of Coaching, we closely examine the importance of Building Authentic Trust within an organization and the magnitude of transparency’s role in that equation. Being Transparent is about sincerity, honesty, real vulnerability, fierce conversations, grace, humility, and composure.
Transparent leaders are authentic and deliver their brand of honesty with respect and concern for others. There are no hidden agendas. Information is shared openly, yet appropriately.
Leaders demonstrate Being Transparent by:
A transparent organization will attract the best and retain the best. An opaque organization will continually deal with high turnover or a disgruntled workforce. – Richard W. Oliver
