Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0470278765, Hardcover)In Transparency, the authors?a powerhouse trio in the field of leadership?look at what conspires against "a culture of candor" in organizations to create disastrous results, and suggest ways that leaders can achieve healthy and honest openness. They explore the lightning-rod concept of "transparency"?which has fast become the buzzword not only in business and corporate settings but in government and the social sector as well.Together Bennis, Goleman, and O'Toole explore why the containment of truth is the dearest held value of far too many organizations and suggest practical ways that organizations, their leaders, their members, and their boards can achieve openness. After years of dedicating themselves to research and theory, at first separately, and now jointly, these three leadership giants reveal the multifaceted importance of candor and show what promotes transparency and what hinders it. They describe how leaders often stymie the flow of information and the structural impediments that keep information from getting where it needs to go. This vital resource is written for any organization?business, government, and nonprofit?that must achieve a culture of candor, truth, and transparency.

"In this book, distinguished authors Warren Bennis, Daniel Goleman, and James O'Toole explore what it means to be a transparent leader, create a transparent organization, and live in an ever more transparent world culture. In three interconnected essays, they examine transparency from three different vantage points - within and between organizations, in terms of personal responsibility, and finally, in the context of the new digital reality - all with an emphasis on how these relate to leaders and leadership." "Combining theory and experience, this book offers both a long view of transparency and a wealth of practical advice. The ideas in each chapter will make anyone both a better follower and a better leader."--BOOK JACKET.
