About Transparency

It’s difficult to be transparent when you’re using a unilateral control mindset; you would have to share information that doesn’t support your solutions, disclose why you really want to know what you’re asking, and reveal that you are, in fact, trying to unilaterally control the situation. Sharing this information would undermine your approach and your ability to win. But being transparent when using a mutual learning mindset actually increases your effectiveness and enhances your strategy because your strategy is to learn jointly rather than control the situation.
