So many people are asking for transparency at work, but are then upset when it happens. Transparent feedback from their leaders seems to ignite the ego. Transparent numbers about how they are doing in their performance can trigger excuses. The transparency of the new internet world has been causing a ton of disruption as well because the tracking and analytics can show the true results of our work.

What we thought would do well in the market (for example a video project we created) only gets a few views once we see the metrics.

This episode talks through my thoughts on transparency as we continue to move to a world that is fueled by more data, more technology and more focus on expertise instead of opinions and how this interacts with drama in the workplace.

This shift has been super fascinating to see in the organizations I am speaking and consulting in. With this shift causing so much confusion, I thought I'd break down some examples of what I mean in this podcast episode.

Hope you all enjoy this one!
