Transparency in Our Company Transparency in Our Company Presentation Transcript

  • Transparency Inside our Company
  • Important Question
    • How much should we tell our subordinates about what is really going on in our company?
  • The Answer
    • The answer is simple: the more the better.
  • Leaders
    • Leaders have talked about transparency for a long time, but it’s never been more important than it is now.
  • Why do we share Information?
    • We share information with employees for a couple of reasons:
      • It’s the right thing to do.
      • It’s good for business.
    • If your company doesn’t have a culture of openness and free-flowing information, now is the time to move in that direction.
  • Transparency Main Reasons
    • People assume the worst when they don’t hear from leaders:
      • Silence from the executive suite causes a lot of fear and resentment, which certainly doesn’t contribute to a productive culture.
  • Transparency Main Reasons
    • Employees may not understand how the external environment affects the company.
    • Creating a transparent company helps everyone stay mindful of the forces affecting the bottom line.
  • Transparency Main Reasons
    • Transparency helps employees connect to the why.
    • When employees are working in a vacuum, they can’t see the financial “big picture”.
    • Transparency connects them to the why - and that understanding propels them to act.
  • Transparency Main Reasons
    • Transparency allows for consistent messaging across the organization.
    • When you commit to transparency, people don’t have to get their (speculative, distorted) news through the company.
    • They hear what’s really going on, in a controlled and consistent way, from their managers.
  • Transparency Main Reasons
    • When everyone is hearing the same messages from their leaders, everyone is motivated to respond in similar ways.
    • Employees in Department A get the same kind of leadership and direction as employees in Department B.
    • Everyone knows the rules.
  • Transparency Main Reasons
    • Transparency keeps good people from leaving.
    • High performers don’t thrive in an atmosphere of secrecy and uncertainty.
    • They want to work for a company that treats them with respect and values their problem-solving skills.
  • Transparency Main Reasons
    • Transparency leads to faster, more efficient execution.
    • When times are tough, execution is everything. And the ticket to good execution is good alignment:
    • All sectors of an organization must understand exactly what’s required so they act in a coordinated and collaborative fashion.
    • Transparency is what facilitates that kind of alignment.
  • Transparency Main Reasons
    • It eliminates Park Ranger Leadership.
    • If you were lost in the woods a few times and a park ranger always showed up and led you to safety, you wouldn’t develop any survival skills. You wouldn’t have to.
    • The same is true of employees who wait for their heroic park rangers (senior leaders, that’s you!) to lead the organization out of the economic wilderness.
  • Transparency Main Reasons
    • It facilitates the best possible solutions.
    • In transparent cultures, leaders encourage employees to solve problems themselves.
    • And because those employees are the people closest to a problem, and because they must live with the outcome, they almost always design the most effective, efficient solution.
  • Conclusion
    • Transparency is a way of life, not a stop-gap measure.
    • It shapes your organizational culture and drives results in any economic environment.
    • As recovery gets underway, as long as you maintain your commitment to openness and constant communication, your organization will only get stronger.
