Event Details

We often hear about the need for transparency in leadership. However, many of us don’t understand why it matters or how to do it well. A transparent leader walks the line between being honest and oversharing. They’re vulnerable when the time comes but do so in a composed manner that earns employee buy-in and establishes trust. Join us as we talk about transparency, how and when to display it, and why it’s essential for great leadership.
