A transparent person is one who is authentic, honest, straight up, and not hiding who they are. Technically, it is the quality of being easily seen through. Being transparent in either the workplace or in your personal relationships is a desired skill for your employer and a valuable gift for those you are in a relationship with. As a transparent person, you are helping to build trust and openness with those around you. Transparency also requires you to share your thoughts and opinions in a way that they can be received wholeheartedly.
