The good leader never tells people, “I am transparent.” The only way that you can earn this designation and honor is to show that you are transparent in what you do and say. The good leader lets others decide for themselves if he or she practices transparency.
Myth #1: You can learn how to lead by reading enough books.
The reality is that to learn how to lead, you must lead. Trial and error will teach you the most about what it means to lead people.
