I’m just writing to review a Dr. Scholls product. I recently received some insoles and they’re fantastic. I needed them for my dress shoes for work. I have great support and they make my feet hurt less during the day.
The title of this article says it all. Personally, I feel that as the days pass, our moral compass continues to deteriorate.
One simple action can be carried such a long way; be true to your word.
Think about the ramifications of deviating from your promises. Valued concepts such as respect, hope, trust all die swiftly.
In my years in the work force, I have had the pleasure to work with a great variety of individuals and observe their behavior. However, in that observation, I have noticed such a wide variance of behavior.
I’ve seen that the amount of commitment from the entire chain of command has been diminished. It is a shame to see such a result from years of work, as employees rely upon their peers and leadership for the follow through.
We should all strive to hold each other accountable. With accountability comes respect and trust. With accountability comes commitment. With accountability comes crisp, clean, and effective communication.
Strive to keep your word, regardless if you are at the top of the corporate ladder or if you’re the mail room sorter. Employees won’t respect and work hard for someone who can’t keep their word, whereas employees will work twice as hard for individuals that stay true to their word.
Where should we start with this new blog?
First, I say welcome! It is often difficult to find the words to get started. I will say that I hold high ambitions for this blog.
What is this blog going to be all about? Business. I want to add my thoughts about the business world as I see it. These thoughts could come from my reactions from the news or current events, shopping at a store, or experience in my career; past and present. The way I see it, Business impacts every aspect of our every day lives.
I’ll be the first to admit that I do not have all the answers in life, nor do I pretend to be an expert in any field. I do not, nor will I apologize for anything I share in this blog. I am not out to offend, rather, raise awareness and offer challenging thoughts or even praise to certain topics or individuals.
Topics I intend to cover in the future include Customer Service, Communication, Ethics, Management, Leadership, Business Operations, Technology, et al.
In the days to come, look for my next article to kick off some conversation. Until then, I’ll continue to enjoy my coffee this morning, as it gets the juices flowing!
