Work at Home and Moral Leadership: What's the ConnectionWritten by David Moore
I had lunch recently with a close friend of mine. He said something that stuck with me. ďI see a lot of leaders today who donít seem to have convictions. They are inconsistent. They donít really lead. They just go through motions. But worse are other leaders I see who have convictions, but because of political expediency or weak will, donít live by them.Ē
Political expediency and weak will. I donít care how talented or how adept you are at making yourself look good, if you lack moral courage you will never be satisfied with your life, youíll always suffer from paranoia (wondering if your misdeeds will be discovered), and any wealth you attain you will not be able to enjoy. The philosopher William George Jordan said it best. ďInto hands of every individual is given a marvelous tool for good or evil - silent, unconscious, unseen influence of his life. This is simply constant radiation of what a man really is, not what he pretends to be.Ē
When looking for online business opportunities I thought about this. I decided I would not consider any business that does not have a set of core values to guide in decision making. John Dalla Costa wrote a book a few year back called The Ethical Imperative: Why Moral Leadership is Good Business. In his book Dalla Costa offers numerous examples of how companies who try to skirt legal requirements to save money end up paying more in fines and legal costs. On positive side he also offers examples of companies who refuse to compromise core convictions even if it means paying a monetary price for doing so. In every example companies that hold to their core convictions, who do not take legal short-cuts or engage in questionable business practices ultimately become more profitable. Their reputation as an honest company causes their stock (and stocks) to rise, while companies who pay fines for violating environmental regulations or who seem to find their way into news for other questionable business practices ultimately lose credibility as astute investors take their money elsewhere while clients lose confidence in their business practices.
