Sharing Information Helps You Think

Eric Lanke

I last wrote about this two weeks ago, in The Case for Sharing Information. Having asked everyone else in the organization to do the same, I decided I would lead by example and chose the following behavior: We share information openly and proactively, demonstrating an understanding that our actions impact others.

But upon reflection, I realized that the information I was keeping locked up in the corner office had more value out in the trenches.
