The Surprising Power of Anonymity

How to enable people to contribute at their best.

Many executives believe that their organization has an open culture, a belief that is often shared by their employees. Yet employees and managers alike report that their people somehow clam up and underperform in meetings. This can impede sound decision-making.

This paper argues that attempts to create openness without addressing the fundamental challenges which individuals face in meetings are unlikely to work.

An effective way of overcoming these challenges is the use of meeting solutions which offer anonymity. The results are both positive and surprising. In hundreds of organizations around the world, in virtually all industries, anonymity has removed obstacles to disclosure and sources of prejudice, leading to a dramatic improvement in trust, engagement, and productivity.
