Integrity is often a misunderstood and misused term within business, and for this reason, Akashic Ventures have been investigating the true meaning of the word.
Integrity means adhering to a moral code, reflected in transparency, honesty and harmony, through the actions and thoughts of a person. Integrity should be the basic building blocks upon which a business is built. Leeds-based direct sales and marketing specialists, Akashic Ventures, recognise that this is not always as easy as it sounds but insists improving integrity allows other important ingredients such as trust to manifest to a business’s customer base.
Acting without integrity is a killer in the world of business and as many company have learnt, they are more likely to successfully connect with consumers when they appear transparent and demonstrate consistent integrity. In business, integrity is a critical trait all successful leaders should possess in abundance. Leaders who can demonstrate this quality are guaranteed to shine and pave the wave for like-minded others.
