Dale Carnegie Training is focused on the message of opportunity and success for businesses and organizations that need it for growth and leadership. Here in Atlanta, the insights and understanding of positive relationships and leadership are especially significant in today’s fast changing environment. Our collective mission is to align integrity with common sense principles. This focus makes our coaching, training, educational programs, and seminars unique and specific to each business and organization. To most of us involved with Dale Carnegie Training, our services make sense and we help to grow better professionals because of them.
Lately, as we watch the local and national news shows, we are seeing an increasing amount of headlines that focus on the imperfections of leadership, from graft and corruption to ethics violations and criminal activity. It might be a story about a corrupt mayor or city council, or it might involve famous sports figures. This type of news is quite common today. It might make for good reading for many, but when someone is charged and caught with questionable morals and total disregard to integrity, it hurts us all.
Honest and approachable leadership is essential for continuous success. If leadership has ethics, it is almost a certainty it will be successful. Leaders must be followed by good people for activities to take place and goals to be completed.
Astute and honest leadership must focus on following five Dale Carnegie principles:
- Always tell the truth no matter the consequences.
- Keep every message and conversation honest and forthright.
- Err on the side of honesty and integrity. Mistakes can happen.
- Stick to the mission and core beliefs of the people you represent.
- Engage everyone as equals.
Every single leader will have a moment of high risk and uncertainty. How it is handled makes the difference. It is how good things happen in organizations; doing the right thing in every instance is what gave the work of Dale Carnegie Training its global image. Standing up for others in positive ways and involving them in process means success every single time.
Integrity is the key to continued success.
