Here is the conclusion:
Transparency leads to empowerment:
Share your successes and your failures and look to everyone to help build a better company. By including everyone, you create the illusive “we” that is the essence of company culture. Transparency leads to a company culture that creates an outcome because the CEO creates a bigger purpose for the organization than just making money or reaching quarterly numbers. Company culture guru Kenneth Kurtzman author of Common Purpose said it best when he said “CEOs need to know how to read their organizations’ emotional tone and need to engage behaviors that build trust including leading-by-listening, building bridges, showing compassion and caring, demonstrating their own commitment to the organization, and giving employees the authority to do their job while inspiring them to do their best work.”
There is no substitute for CEO leadership in creating a company culture of integrity. A board that supports the CEO in building a company culture of integrity, transparency, and collaboration will be supporting a successful company.
