Where is the Integrity in Business?

User Rating:  / 1
Let me start by saying I believe that there’s a lot more to integrity than being honest.

That said, honesty is not to be discounted.

A big part of the financial meltdown over the last year began a long time ago.

Unfortunately, greed, deception and fraud played a large role in most of the failures. The effect, of course, went far beyond the reach of the financial institutions.

The “ripple effect” ended up to be more like a tsunami.

We were led to believe the watchdog agencies, the courts and our laws would protect us from much of the disaster that occurred. Obviously, this was not the case.

I’m not an economist and I don’t pretend to know a great deal about international banking, the mortgage industry and the like. But without question, decisions were made, shortcuts were taken and too many people let their values go by the wayside.

Integrity was clearly lacking.

But there’s much more to integrity than simply being honest and playing by the rules.

The second and third definition of integrity is wholeness and completeness.

And under those definitions, VERY FEW companies—large or small—truly have integrity.

Most small businesses today merely employ the people who own them. The “owners” work for the business instead of the business working for the owner.

And it’s not their fault.

Few small business owners understand that their business is largely an opportunity—a project if you will—and lacks the wholeness that’s necessary to sustain growth and survive for more than a few years.

And sadly, most of them will fail.

Here at SuccessNet, a big part of our message is about values and principles--about integrity in life and in business.

And this summer, I’m conducting an online (via webinar) 13-week World Class Business School. During June, July & August, participants will get a chance to work with me as I help them “round out” their business. They’ll learn how they can have all the pieces they need to build a world-class business and integrate this knowledge into their lives and their business.

Full details on this program are available by clicking here . . .

And if you’d like to listen to the webinar I did recently on 12 Keys to Building a Solid, Profitable, Principle-Driven Business, you can do that now. Just register on this page and you will be given immediate access.

We are only accepting 12 people into the business school this summer, and there are only four slots remaining. So if you’re interested, apply right away.

The application process is very simple and takes only about 4 minutes.

It’s not for everyone, but it is for people committed to building a solid, profitable, principle—driven business with integrity.

Too many businesses are trying to put their business puzzle together without all the pieces. They don’t have all the pieces and they don’t know what they are.

And again, it’s not their fault. They’ve just never had a blueprint for their success in life and business. Now they can learn and apply this profound knowledge.
