These virtues are important to apply business-wide: to your customers, to your employees, to your vendors and to yourself!
Virtues: behaviors showing high moral standards. Do they belong in business? You bet they do! Do they exist in business? Maybe not as often as they should!
Being virtuous in the business world doesn't equate to being soft! You still need to be a savvy entrepreneur and dominate your field. However, doing so with these virtues in your toolbox, you have the potential to build incredible trust, loyalty and commitment with your customers, your staff and your vendors. If you are able to create an ecosystem that breeds this kind of reciprocal respect, you'll have people eating out of your hand. Customers will want to buy from you, staff will work their tails off for you and vendors will clear their calendars to do business with you! H. Jackson Brown, Jr., author of Life's Little Instruction Book, gives us 5 insightful virtues that will enrich your life and anchor your success. Brown's 21 Suggestions for Success makes us take a good look at where success comes from.
