In this brief and timely audio book, the authors 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 audio book starts with a preface by Warren Bennis, followed by three essays:
-- The New Transparency
-- Speaking Truth to Power
-- Creating a Culture of Candor Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Would not be out of place in the executive reading room.”

    Edge

  • “After watching so many American presidents derailed by a culture of secrecy—Richard Nixon and George W. Bush are only the most recent—one might imagine that transparency would become the watchword of leaders everywhere. Alas, it has not: witness Enron and subprime mortgages. Here in these pages, with arguments that are enormously compelling, Warren Bennis, Daniel Goleman, and James O'Toole urge leaders of every stripe to create ‘a culture of candor’ around them. Please give this book to anyone heading toward the front office, especially if it is oval.”

    David Gergen, author of Eyewitness to Power

  • “In this vital new book, Warren Bennis, Daniel Goleman, and Jim O'Toole have teamed up to address the vital question of our times, whether organizations have the courage to be open, honest, and most of all, transparent. They give deep insights into why transparency is essential to long-term business success. It is a mustread for anyone who wants to build an authentic organization.”

    Bill George, author of True North, and Authentic Leadership
