But what if businesses could partner with workers and consumers instead of compete against them, and what if this partnership could actually improve the bottom line? This is the stand that Business of Honor takes. By honoring employees and customers, we actually improve long-term business performance. We end up with happy, fulfilled employees, customers that we’ve treated fairly and want to do business with us, and excellent business results. We get success with each set of stakeholders when we treat everyone with respect and honor.
Throughout the book, Business of Honor gives anecdotes and examples of positive business results resulting from honorable dealings with customers, employees, and suppliers – a banker extends loan terms because of forthright discussion of current business problems, a coworker prevents the author from making a bad decision because they fostered an atmosphere of collaboration, and a favorable settlement brought about by the author’s ability to listen to the other side and reject the urge to argue and belittle.
As the reader accepts the premise of acting honorably in order to perform superbly, you are also given a guide in how to lead with honor. Like anything else worth doing, the journey starts by empowering yourself. In order to lead others with honor and respect, successful leaders need to look into themselves and address psychological wounds: we can’t effectively hear feedback, be held accountable for goals, or be in community with others if we are insecure about our own worth, needs, or intelligence. Insecurity makes feedback sound like blame, accountability seem like impossible expectations, and community seem risky and scary. We can only operate in truth when we can objectively look at ourselves and see the value in who we really are.
As you empower yourself by becoming comfortable with your own strengths and weaknesses, the journey to serving stakeholders with honor can begin. Business of Honor gives leaders, and it shows us how we are all leaders, a guide to leading lives of honor by fostering an environment where colleagues can give and receive truthful, direct, and helpful feedback; be held accountable; and be given deserved trust, purpose, and autonomy in order to create value how we see fit. All of these actions that build honor lead to fulfilling relationships, a sense of purpose, and business success. The book gives us the blueprint. It is up to us to better ourselves and lead with honor.
Thanks to Bob for writing a refreshingly vulnerable, honest, and helpful book. Your willingness to give so much of yourself away is an inspiration for others to do the same!
