Discussion: Appropriate Use of Transparency
Consider the following two scenarios:
Employees work in an atmosphere of distrust and fear. Leaders make decisions behind closed
doors. Changes to processes and staffing often occur unexpectedly without warning or
explanation. A few select people are given information and guard it jealously. Most employees
do not get an opportunity to give input or feedback.
Employees work in a small company where everyone knows everything about everyone and the
rumor mill runs rampant. Leadership gives both praise and reprimands in public. They frequently
discuss employees personal affairs.
These scenarios illustrate two extremes of transparency in business. Maintaining the right degree
of transparency is a challenge for many organizations. Some leaders operate their organizations
with an open-book management style. Others believe in carefully maintaining the security of
information. Leaders must determine the appropriate level of transparency necessary for their
organizations to stay healthy.
To prepare for this Discussion, consider your experience with transparency of information and
decision making in organizations of which you have been a part, such as businesses or schools.
