In this day and age, integrity and accountability are two of the most important things you can do to keep your company on a journey toward excellence. There are no gray areas, it’s black and white and if you put the right people and culture in place, it can be very rewarding long term for your bottom line.
Unfortunately, some business leaders look for the quickest road to success, regardless of the consequences. The business pages of newspapers and magazines are ﬁlled with news about seemingly successful companies and executives who basked in the glory of the cover stories and feature articles, only to come crashing back to earth as their dishonest, corrupt, and greedy business practices came to light.
Companies are created for one purpose: to achieve a mission. To do this requires consistent delivery of results against goals. Results are best achieved when organizations have strong leaders who know how to balance vision and results, create an accountability-based culture, hire the right people, operate with unquestionable integrity, and have the courage to lead.
Success without accountability and integrity is not an option.
