A note about transparency and what can make it truly powerful.

“The real goal of transparency should be to achieve better thinking. But this doesn’t happen because of the transparency itself. Better thinking happens only when leaders listen to feedback, changing their plans to incorporate better ideas. Those in power have to behave graciously when criticized, and reward people who provide good ideas, not with token praise, but with the only true reward—improving the plan.”
