There are many ways to run a successful company, but some practices are almost guaranteed to help you along the way. One of those, according to three founders of fast-growing companies, is transparency.
Carey Smith, the founder of Big Ass Fans and Unorthodox Ventures; Diana Lee, the co-founder and CEO of Constellation Agency; and Nicole Sahin, the founder and CEO of Globalization Partners, agreed that transparency is an essential leadership trait, especially in difficult times. They spoke about the state of business today at a virtual town hall Monday moderated by Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. The discussion was part of the 2020 Inc. 5000 Vision Conference, a weeklong virtual event celebrating entrepreneurship and this year’s Inc. 5000 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies.
The panelists offered advice to business leaders who are seeking to soften the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on both their companies’ bottom lines
