Here are the results of the poll in Newsletter #15
Do you feel management in your organization is transparent?

11,5% (Radical transparent)

Although there is still a lot to win, it’s good to see we’re moving in the right direction.
When management is transparent about what is really going on within the organization, employees are more accountable, more engaged and more creative in their jobs. In a transparent culture everybody has access to the same (important) information and issues, which in turn helps everyone to take better decisions, and to understand how their contribution and collaboration could make or break the success of the organization.
Are you a better leader/employer/employee due to transparency? Or maybe disengaged due to lack of transparency? What would you suggest to create more transparency? Do you have any tips? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!

"How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour, and that one, is what we are doing." This famous quote by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Annie Dillard really hits the nail on its head. And as we spend most of our days at work, the work we do says a lot about the way we lead our lives.
