I’ve found that business ethic is something that’s hard to put into words. But I’ve been able to articulate my beliefs about it and how I believe it can have a positive impact on the world around us.
Ive had a chance to talk about a few specific business ethics topics like transparency and honesty with a few people. I have to say that I wasn’t impressed with the results. They are all highly over-stating or under-stating key points, making it very hard to know which parts are accurate and which are just exaggerations. I also think that its a little hard to put in practice especially considering that it requires a lot of time and effort.
Transparency and honesty have been talked about in this space before. I thought it was a good start. This year I will be introducing members of our board to a few different kinds of ethics and sustainability programs to see which ones work best for our business.
So far we’ve found that having a few different programs to cover the various aspects of our business has made a big difference in how we run and manage it. For example, we’re trying to take a more “business-friendly” approach to our operations. It’s not just about telling our members how to do things, but also having a lot of transparency in what we do.

For example, were trying to take a more business-friendly approach to our operations. Its not just about telling our members how to do things, but also having a lot of transparency in what we do.
We’ve had to become more proactive in our decision to be more transparent about our company’s actions. For example, the last time I had to make a complaint about how our company was being run, I was really confused, and also a bit overwhelmed. I could see that the response time and amount of money I was getting from the company didn’t seem like they were doing it for the right reasons.
In the previous incident, it seemed like we just started a new job and continued our old one, and that seemed like the correct way to run the company. But the new job involved a different kind of company which required a lot of changes to our business model. So we started looking at what we had to do to make it work. I ended up writing a letter to the CEO and asking him to explain the company in a way that was understandable to investors.
I’ve been a banker for 27 years, and the first time I met him he was in a suit, but he wasn’t quite what I expected. He wasn’t a corporate lawyer, and he said he didn’t need to be one. He said he just wanted to know what business ethics and sustainability meant to him.
Weve all seen the business plans that companies put out. They show how much money they are going to make and how much profit they expect to get, how many people they expect to employ, and how long it will take to get there. But if you look at them in a way that is understandable to investors or the public, you can find that there are a lot of “ifs” in them. Companies with a big “if” list have more problems.
In the business plan industry, being “do it right” is often viewed as good practice, but not being “do it at all” usually comes with a cost. In fact, companies with poor business ethics tend to be the ones with higher profits, and companies with poor sustainability tend to have lower profit margins. This is the kind of lesson that we learn in school, but it’s not how most people learn it.
