Leading with Transparency with Sid Sijbrandij and Rebecca Blumenstein

As a leader, transparency can be a tricky topic to navigate. It’s often framed as an end-goal — an inherent good that all leaders should aspire to — but full transparency just isn’t possible in most industries. So, how should leaders think about transparency in the workplace? How can they use it to motivate and inspire their teams? When should they share, and why?

In this episode, host Gautam Mukunda speaks with GitLab’s co-founder and CEO Sid Sijbrandij and the Deputy Managing Editor of the New York Times Rebecca Blumenstein about how being intentional with transparency can result in authenticity, honesty and openness in workplace culture.

“Companies that are more forthcoming about their challenges and their problems generally fare much better.” — Rebecca Blumenstein

“What’s really important is that we’re transparent by default. So, things are public by default unless we have a good reason not to do that.” — Sid Sijbrandij
