Withholding information: The refusal to share information in order to maintain an advantage over others. This is the 9th Habit That Keeps You from The Top as described and pronounced by Marshall Goldsmith in his leadership book “What Got You Won’t Get You There”. As Marshall puts it, “the problem with not sharing information, for whatever reason, is that it rarely achieves its desired effect. You may think you are gaining an edge….. but you are actually breeding mistrust” (pg.69). What about the reverse, providing information openly and even without being asked? This weeks Vlog explores this subject and askes some very interesting questions to think about.
