PRINCIPLES First


For Leaders; Commitment to certain principles is the most important determinant that causes success in the long-run.

Leaders, whatever they manage – A multi-national giant, an SME, a SOHO, Non-profit organization, an hospital, military, religious organization or any type of organization – should have principles that guide their followers.

Integrity which can be briefly defined with a proverb: “walk your talk” is essential in leadership. Sincerity, Trustworthiness, and Honesty are attributes that build Integrity in leaders. Followers, subordinates and colleagues follow leaders whom they trust. People respect those leaders who have integrity.
