Workplace Values - Integrity

Can Opener - Check

Can of worms - Check

How focused are you on the bottom line? What about integrity?

What do you think are some common workplace values in a business that lacks integrity? These can be values that are prevalent among front line employees, management or corporate leaders. Let me help you with the list.
  • Lack of Direction/Focus
  • Situational Ethics
  • WIIFM - What's In It For Me
  • Personal Gain
  • Selfishness
  • Greed
  • Dishonesty
I bet we all can identify some business we've come across that have displayed one or all of these traits.

But if a business is based on integrity, then we have a different list of values.
  • Defined Goals
  • Doing what is Right
  • Customer Focused
  • Teamwork
  • Creativity
Take a look around. Is your business based on integrity? What do they value more - Integrity or the bottom line?

Values lead to Beliefs. Beliefs lead to Thoughts. Thoughts lead to Choices. Choices lead to Behaviors. Behaviors lead to Results.
