In business environments characterized by low trust, a lack of perceived transparency is a common phrase bandied around. High performing team leaders create transparency where possible. As team leaders there may be information you are privy to which cannot be passed on. Where possible, you will want to create an open culture which is transparent, where people feel comfortable asking questions and trust that they are getting the "real answer".
Of course, there are also instances where you cannot divulge and need to maintain confidentiality, particularly in issues related to privacy, discipline etc.
This week consider what issues you need to be more transparent around. Which issues need to be maintained as confidential or private? Confirm this with your own leader and if in doubt, consult HR. Each jurisdiction is different.
