Culture begins at the top. It doesn’t matter what you claim to the marketplace, or your customers, or your constituency.
As we say around the Gapingvoid HQ: How you do anything is how you do everything.
Humans are hard-wired to copy. And we’re all part of the cultures we live in, whether we like it or not.
Not a political rant, just an obvious leadership fallacy. You can’t claim you’re going to be the most transparent leader ever, unless you mean it. Unless you have a good strategy for making it happen.
