If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you do not do it
have integrity, nothing else matters. — Alan C. Simpson
If I ask you which attribute is most impactful
in terms of the success of a business, you know
immediately who is most important? Based on mine
many years as a business owner and entrepreneur I have

a company that is failing.

the global market that now gives expression to

plenty of competing companies readily available and
accessible via the internet, there’s really no need for it

a characteristic known as “Honesty”. However, achieving
true integrity with customers often leaves much to be desired
entrepreneur confused grasping at techniques and
strategies that ensure their future. But integrity is

the nature of the individual, his company and team members,
that she remains steadfast no matter what. no doubt,
others feel it and find it very attractive.

a leader who understands the qualities of integrity that then
it filters across the company in every department
and the approach and attitude of each member.

Ethics – an organization that is among the leaders in the world
in promoting the best corporate ethical practices, it was found

behavior’ almost invariably outperform companies that do not
display ethical behavior. The director of the Institute of
Business ethicist, Philippa Foster Black, stated: “Not only

behavior pays off in financial gains.” These findings
deserve to be seen as an important tool for companies
striving for long-term perspectives and growth.
