As described in Chapter 2, one of the most important steps to take toward open leadership is doing an audit of how open you are. The “Ten Elements of Openness” provides a starting point to understand how open you are in your information sharing and decision making. Assess the openness of your organization and use it as a starting point for your open strategy. Are you as open as you need to be to achieve your goals? Includes a brief explanation of the Ten Elements of Openness, graphics for your internal use, and a PDF of the assessment tool that you can use throughout your organization.
Engagement Pyramid In Chapter 3 of “Open Leadership”, I discuss how people—both customers and employees—are engaging with your company, brand, product, or even in a broad topic. To help illustrate this, I use the Engagement Pyramid, which is made up of five levels, with each level representing a higher degree of engagement.
