New Rules of Open
Open leadership focuses on relationships, and oppor- tunities lie within these relationships. The key for today’s leader is to find a balance between
control and openness. New rules of open leadership include
Respect that your clients and staff members have
power. Once you accept this as true, you can begin to have a
real, more equal relationship with them.
Share constantly to build trust. Trust is typically formed
when people do what they say they will do. In today’s increasingly virtual, engaged environments, trust also comes from
the daily patter of conversations. The repeated successful
interchange of people sharing their thoughts, activities, and
concerns results in relationships.
Nurture curiosity and humility. Express curiosity about
what others are doing and why something is important to
them. That curiosity keeps shared discussions grounded and
focused on what other people want to hear balanced with
what you want to say. The natural outgrowth of curiosity is
humility, which gives you the intellectual integrity to acknowledge that you still have a lot to learn and also to admit when
you are wrong.
Hold openness accountable. In relationships, accountability is a two-way street: It clarifies the expectations in the
relationship as well as the consequences if they are not met.
If your project or service causes someone problems, apologize
and figure out how to resolve the problem.
Forgive failure. Things go wrong all the time in relationships. The healthiest leaders move on, leaving behind grudges
