Being a Transparent Leader
November 11, 2012 Edition
In this Pasco Leadership Minute, Irene Salazar interviews Mr. Patrick Reedy, Principal at Pasco High School. Mr. Reedy discusses the importance of being a transparent leader. A transparent leader shares information and models the thinking process so that other leaders learn and grow and eventually begin to think outside the box.
We invite you to read Leading in Challenging Times, which is a pdf that was published from the Office of Human Resources at the University of Minnesota. This article highlights the forces that impede transparency and the steps to take in order to overcome them. It emphasizes the need to be honest, candid, clear, and detailed, which will demonstrate a commitment to the growth of all stakeholders thereby establishing trust and loyalty.
