The Personality of Your Business
It is a well-established fact that companies and other human institutions take on the character and characteristics of the strongest personalities and the dominant belief system. In politics and global affairs we can see the negative examples in countries that are under the sway of a dictator or a dictatorial philosophy. But we also see positive examples, as in the way that successful companies and interest groups take on the enthusiasm and energy of their leading lights. Owners and managers of many successful firms will attribute their success to having built a business philosophy on scrupulous character and honest conduct.
In a business environment that rewards honesty, hard work and customer service, people with these qualities will prosper. No matter what kind of business it is, a company in today’s marketplace must approach customers with a “service mentality,” and not treat any sale as a one-time transaction.
