It's good to hear that employing a clear, open business policy can boost the bottom line and upgrade management. With all the recent corporate scandals, a management approach based on 'what you see is what you get' is refreshing ¿ and it works. Transparent management can increase employee morale, retention and productivity. Transparent leaders are better at their jobs and make a difference in people's lives. Using case studies and self-assessment surveys, authors Barbara and Elizabeth Pagano help potential leaders evaluate and hone their honesty and their leadership styles. The case studies in this easy to read, if slightly repetitive, volume help convey the authors' key points, which center on honesty, awareness and open communications. We recommend this value-enriched book to aspiring leaders, managers and executives who may be surprised to learn that transparent leadership is one of those intangibles that can produce concrete results.Was this review helpful?

Triple Play-a great book for me, my team and my boss.
I checked out the website for this book and see it's a finalist for FAST COMPANY magazine's March 2004 book of the month. No surprise here! The authors ask tough questions that made me do some thinking, especially about my reputation. I realize when it comes to figuring out how other people might see me-in some areas, (I admit it)-I don't have a clue. The book doesn't leave you hanging. The stories are interesting, fresh and the authors give real world advice, not pie-in-the-sky stuff. Plus the research statistics are hard hitting! Ouch! But the best thing about the book for me? It made me want to get better as a manager and co-worker. Thanks for that.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
