Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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
