Leadership transparency vs. exposure

Leadership Transparency Vs. Exposed Leadership...Do you know the difference? As leaders, we are facing a crisis because, unless you’ve been living in your mom's basement for the last decade or so, you will know that there’s a massively growing distrust of anyone in a leadership position. Nowhere is this more obvious than in government.

Leadership transparency vs. exposure

  1. 1. As leaders, we are facing a crisis because there’s a massively growing distrust of anyone in a leadership position. Nowhere is this more obvious than in government. @TheDovBaron
  2. 2. @TheDovBaron It seems a majority of people no longer trust the government and, in fact, often assume the government is flat-out lying about everything.
  3. 3. @TheDovBaron Well, to explain, I need to talk a bit about leadership transparency. Transparency means that the leader is open rather than covert, seen as not having secrets, is congruent with his or her speech and actions. Transparency naturally facilitates trust.
  4. 4. The good news (or bad news depending on what side of the fence you sit) is that we live in the age of the Internet, and it doesn’t take long for any of those cover-ups to be exposed. @TheDovBaron
  5. 5.  That being said let’s make no mistake—being exposed isn’t the same as being transparent, there is a vast difference! @TheDovBaron
  6. 6.  When a leader is transparent, (before exposure) their faults and failures are freely admitted and from that comes a shared vulnerability which in turn leads to trust. @TheDovBaron
  7. 7. Everything you’ve been told about leadership over the past thirty years no longer applies. The world has changed, and so has everything we know about becoming and remaining an effective leader particularly when it comes to keeping your top talent!

  8. 8.  On the other hand, when a leader is exposed, their faults and failures are magnified and as a result, any trust they might have garnered evaporates faster than a snowball in hell. @TheDovBaron
  9. 9.  As a leader today you are operating in a social media exposing business environment. So what can you do so that you don’t fall victim to the loss of trust and the scandals that come from being exposed? @TheDovBaron
