Leadership Challenges for Servant Leaders
John J. Sullivan
How much information do you share with your employees/associates about the organization? Is it better to withhold certain data from those who do not have a "need to know?" In most companies, and even not-for-profits, the answers to those questions would be "Not much," and "Yes!" But does this make sense and is it the best strategy for a servant leader?
In Truth Telling, John Sullivan argues that sharing vital information about the organization with those most impacted by the success of the enterprise, i.e., your employees or members, is not only necessary but vital to the long-term growth and maturity of the organization.
In this monograph, you will be challenged to examine your own leadership style while learning the principles of Open Book Management and its application for servant leaders.
