Will it work?
Yes, if you discuss the rules openly, adjust them over time, and base them on trust and understanding.
Step 1: Co-create and publish a list of transparency rules
Look at the list above and see if there’s a fit. Does this match your organization? Talk openly about it and add/remove to the list.
Step 2: Be transparent about your transparency
Publish the transparency list and guide, and use it actively. Refer to it, when you make decisions on communication and dialogue.
Step 3: Adjust as the culture evolves
Over time the list will evolve and change, as trust, openness and transparency is something you and your team must develop and practice together. As the culture evolves in this way, a need for updating the guide will be needed. Most likely the requests for more transparency will rise.
