Monique, one of your team members has expressed interest in becoming a project manager and wants to develop her leadership skills. She has asked you to be her mentor, which you were honored to accept. During one of your coaching sessions with Monique she asked you your opinion on the importance of being transparent as a leader in your communication. She mentioned that her previous manager on a different project shared with her the reason why most leaders are not transparent is because they believe they will be viewed as less authoritative; that the credentials they worked so hard to attain will lose their power, leverage, and gravity. There is a level of concern over communication differences and level of urgencies between senior stakeholders, sponsors and clients that may make it difficult to be transparent in a project manager’s communication with the team.
