There are 12 Business Cultural Growth qualities to employ for your organisation (just like there are 7 Business Leadership Styles and 12 Business Hyper Growth principles). The tenth being “Integrity, honesty and transparency.”
People like to work with people whom are open, transparent, honest and have high integrity. This clears the air with clients or employees of any misconceived and preconceived ideas of what is expected, what may or may not have happened in any situation.
Character and its demonstration can set the tone for a whole meeting or even a strategy when its unveiled. Integrity to principles and values have to be adhered too otherwise your business will receive a luke warm response or effort towards future directions.
Transparency alleviates any concerns and ensures expectations are clear, precise and completely understood. It allows room for new ideas to come through naturally as everyone is seeing matters clearly.
Build your culture through Integrity, honesty and transparency and see the change with key employees and staff. There are other ancillary benefits of building your business with these cultural values embedded, embodied and imbued ant that is the new leaders will developed faster and with higher core values.
This again, assists with your business growth and development. In effect another upward spiral is created and creating even more momentum for your business. Business can be cut and thrust and even tough, however holding onto these principle’s will give you a greater sense of self-respect which will permeate out through your business and clientele.
A concerted effort to develop your business with these values for your culture will also attract similar employees, clientele and suppliers. This will save considerable down time and investment downstream (e.g. retraining employees, suppliers whom act with high values and principles and so on).
You’re the leader of the business and choose wisely for the culture you want to instill for your organisation and ensure integrity, honesty and transparency are one of the key elements you wish to embrace!
