Believe it or not, some bosses are loathe to share corporate information with their rank-and-file employees.
There are so many good reasons to share as much information as you can:
- Corporate Goals: If employees don’t know what the goals are, how can you expect them to help you get there?
- Organization Chart: Knowing who reports to whom is critical in order to streamline the work process.
- Your Individual Goals: If employees know what drives you, they can more easily help you get there.
When I was in sales management, I even shared my bonus and compensation plans with my staff. By understanding how I got paid, they understood why I was doing what I was doing.
Withholding information creates mistrust; it confuses employees; and it does not help your ultimate objective, which should be to get your entire team to be on the same page, thus celebrating goal achievement.
