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. The technologies that have accelerated this change are here to stay, and as a result there will only be a further interest in transparency. How to become this kind of organization? What conspires, inside an organization, against a “culture of candor”? Why is the containment of information the dearest held value for so many leaders and companies? Three thought leaders in the business world: Warren Bennis, Daniel Goleman and James O’Toole have worked together to create practical ways for organizations to achieve openness and create internal structures that lead to the free flow of ideas.
