Being Open - Talent Management Course Bundle

Do you often keep things to yourself? Tend to hold back information or opinions? Err on the side of non-disclosure? It may not be your intention, but people around you may begin to wonder. Wonder what you’re up to, what your agenda is, whether you’re hoping to gain an advantage over them. Why aren’t you sharing more openly? It may be that you have a reserved nature or prefer privacy or that you don’t want to lose control or appear less authoritative. Regardless of the reasons, it may be time to make some adjustments. Organizations function on the flow of information. Greater transparency is expected at all levels. Find out what people want and need to know and begin to comply. Sending information on relevant topics is a start. Better still, talk or meet with people for open, two-way exchanges. Practice showing and telling it like it is.
