As more of our clients embrace the behaviours of a courageous leader they uncover a truth: courageous leadership requires transparency; that there is an increasing demand to bring greater transparency to their teams. This is not something that has been culturally present in too many organizations and many of these leaders then struggle with this concept. They have experienced the veil of confidentiality being levelled at what is judged appropriate to share.
As you adopt the mantle of courageous leader so this excuse does not align with the kind of leader you want to be – rather they find it demonstrates a lack of trust in their team members.
So take a “look in the mirror” and identify just how transparent you are being and what is posing the most challenge for you as a leader.
