In the book what you do is who you are, Ben Horowitz talks about keeping open communication with organization heads with the team. 

These are his advice:

  1. State the facts clearly
  2. Openness to bad news
  3. Encourage the bad news

This kind of reminds me of Ray Dalio’s Principle of Radical Transparency. This ensures everyone in the team is aware of how as an organization we are doing it collectively.
