The best leaders are open

According Robin Sharma’s book Leadership Wisdom from The Monk who sold his Ferrari the best leaders are open. Here is an excerpt from the book.

To truly win people’s support and deep commitment to your future vision, you must communicate as much key information as possible to them.  The more they know know about what you are doing, the more they’ll invest in where you are going. Just as with aggressive listening, being open and sharing ideas with people is a mark of respect.  Having the decency to quickly and accurately inform them of the things that will affect them will shows them that they are important.  It shows them you value them.  And when you constantly keep lines of communication open, your employees will begin to value you as a leader, so much so that they will not want to let you down.  That’s when the magic starts.

Providing clarity in an open and transparent manner consistently is Leadership.
