Publisher's Summary

In this brief and timely audiobook, best-selling authors and experts in their field look at what conspires against "a culture of candor" in organizations for disastrous results and suggest ways that leaders can achieve healthy honesty and openness.

In three separate essays the authors explore the lightening rod concept of "transparency" which has fast become the buzzword not only in business and corporate settings but in government and the social sector.

The audiobook starts with a preface by Warren Bennis, followed by three essays:

  • The New Transparency
  • Speaking Truth to Power
  • Creating a Culture of Candor
  • ©2008 Warren Bennis, Daniel Goleman and James O'Toole (P)2008 Gildan Media Corp

    Very superficial

    I found this book very superficial. I expected more about the topic. Transparency is crucial to organizational culture and deserved a more structured approach.
