This is a tale of two bosses. Boss No. 1 sees information as gold to be hoarded. He shares on a need-to-know basis…and he believes that few people need to know. So don’t ask him, either—that makes you suspect.
Boss No. 2 shares the wealth. Information isn’t gold to be hoarded but a seed to be planted. Subordinates are looped in early and often. The more that people know, the more they can grow in their jobs.
This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Ask anyone who works for anyone else, and she’ll tell you this: the best bosses are inclusive. The best bosses grow their own success by cultivating others’…in the high calling of our daily work.
