March issue "Transparency Transformation"

As part of our never-ending transformation, we need to talk about Transparency which implies openness, communication, and accountability, operating in a way that thoughts, feelings, or twinmotives are easily perceived and it is easy for others to see what actions are performed.

This open to all transparent thinking is a significant shift from our proprietary me thinking of yesteryear and is a big part of our process of Metamorphosing Me.  I find my younger mentors bring clarity to the meaning of Transparency as they ask why is that done that way? That does not make sense?

The answer often is because in the past we did not want to be transparent...Yikes!

That is a scary thought, but true, but achieving Transparency may even be scarier if we do not change the opaqueness of our mind set.

We need to listen to the people who are driving the digital metamorphosis that I have been ranting on about in my last few columns, giving it a Brain, Face, Body, and Voice.

The implication of transparency is that all of an organization’s actions should be scrupulous enough to bear public scrutiny. Increasingly, the nature of social media and other communications means that even actions intended to be secret may be brought into the publics' awareness, despite an organization's best efforts to keep them hidden.

The program is starting to evolve, panels discussions we must have are all being discussed and set as I write this blog.
