The Haunting Of Character

The Haunting Of Character

I haven’t been following the Oscar Pistorius trial till last week. I’ve looked at the headlines of papers. Listening to some highlights last week not only gave me a glimpse into the South African court system but also got me thinking about character…

Values; The Guardrails and Oxygen

Values; The Guardrails and Oxygen

Clearly defined and communicated values steer focus. Values don’t just speak into the identity of enterprises, but also the activity and resource allocation.

Values dictate not only where you need to go but also where not to go. They tell us it is fine not to act or be a particular way. They are the things that uniquely differentiate enterprises that endeavor to ‘produce’ similar ‘products’.
