Growth, Profit, Civic and Social Responsibility

Creating a strong value system is a key part of your organizational culture and must be connected to your mission and vision – from recruiting, through onboarding, annual performance reviews and your social responsibilities. Bringing your values to life helps institutionalize them. It is a process that includes modelling what “Exceptional Leadership Looks Like” and ensuring leadership consistently communicates your expectations throughout your organization. Leaders set the top from the top so do not miss an opportunity to model this behavior.

It is important that we insist on senior management adherence to high ethical standards and social responsibility. Done with conviction, and as part of your strategy, corporate growth and social responsibilities will become a way of life and feed off each other. Growth, profitability, and civic and social responsibility are not mutually exclusive but support one another. It will help to define, who you are, what you stand for and what you will not compromise as an organization.

Integrity is the glue. It ensures you do what is right for your customers, your people, shareowners, and stakeholders. Live your word and establish open, candid, trusting and respectful relationships at all levels. Treating all people inside and outside fairly and with dignity and respect. Make decisions that are effective rather than politically correct.

Civic/Social Responsibility will demonstrate honesty, transparency, and integrity in both business, personal life and in the communities, you live and work. The actions you take should model civic responsibility and support worthwhile social causes and this will encourage employees to accept social responsibility for giving back in ways consistent with the organization’s ethical and social values.

Some examples of social responsibility and its support of growth are being attentive to the needs of your people and the communities you serve. You value diversity and encourage a wide range of viewpoints among team members to avoid groupthink and create more culturally sensitive solutions. You and your senior leaders ensure that pay, recognition, and other rewards are distributed in a fair manner, with clear guidelines and enforcement of those guidelines, and you correct unethical behaviors.

Think of it as your Leadership Mission Statement. Your mission is your compass. No matter where you find yourself in your distinct roles, it helps you navigate to the right direction. It’s your enduring purpose as a leader and developer of people. Like a magnetic north it doesn’t change once you have established it.

Balance is critical to your success on the journey you have constructed on your road map to success. I like to put them in a list form under the headings of LEADS, EXECUTES, INNOVATES AND LIVES THE VALUES. Your list will be uniquely yours and represents the way you live your values and mange the balance between your growth, and profitability goals, and your civic and social responsibility.

Finally, the double check questions to ask yourself along the journey to calibrate your success

• Do my actions match my vision and strategy?
• Does it correspond to what my people believe to be my leadership mission and
• Do I consistently reflect mine and our leadership brand promise to them?
• Do all four have a seat at the decision table, growth, profitable, civic, and social

Leadership is not a passive duty – it is an active responsibility. You are expected to lead. This means providing people with the leadership they need to successfully reach their desired goals in concert with those in the organization.
