Transparency: The Art of Being Honest
Transparency is the unsung leadership superpower. Employees are resilient. You will engender more loyalty and results with the painful truth than you will with a comforting half-truth.

Little Wish Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that grants wishes to children battling cancer. It was started in 2010 by seventeen-year-old Liz Niemiec after witnessing her friend, Max, lose his battle with cancer. The wishes we grant are, as our name implies, modest. Most cost between $500 and $1,000. These wishes may be small, but the impact on children’s lives is immeasurable. They help the children to focus on something happy and positive. To a child undergoing difficult cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, receiving a wish of a gaming system, a new pet, a Lego set, or an iPad can truly change their experience. To date, we have granted over 1,700 little wishes.
