 Code of Honor

When a business or an individual has a Code of Honor, the code forms a framework that guides the actions of the people who are involved within that organization no matter what its size. It is their actions that govern company image, involvement in community, interaction with others, etc. Companies in and of themselves cannot develop an image or even a corporate identity. Companies are reliant on the individuals that make them up to produce that image or identity. Individuals (humans just like you and I) are prone to doing all sorts of things if we are left to our own devices. Here is one example of how actions of individuals can be guided.

A Code of Honor sets out goals and parameters to assist the individuals and to provide them with focus as they go through their day to day activities. I was first introduced to the concept of a Code of Honor by Blair Singer, a lifelong friend of Robert Kiyosaki. Blair said that he had become involved with a trucking outfit that he was managing and it was going broke. Deadlines were being missed daily, drivers not showing up for work, showing up drunk, missing deliveries and pick-ups, in short, just a real mess. He called all the drivers together and sat down with them to discuss what was going to happen. He put it back on them, to come up with a plan to make the business work or else all of them, Blair included were going to lose their jobs.

The drivers were angry and very emotional. Accusations began to fly and it looked as though it was going to turn into a giant brawl. Blair was afraid for his own life, that’s how ugly things got. Then someone said well maybe we should all show up to work on time. And another chimed in, ‘How about sober?’ Blair began writing the points down on the board at the front of the room. Before that meeting was done they had developed a list of points, a Code of Honor. The truckers and dispatchers came out of that meeting with a renewed sense of purpose and determination.

What happened over the next few months was amazing. The company went from worst to first. First in delivery scheduling and being on time, first in customer service, first in showing up ready to work and staying till the job was done. They took Blair to task over some of his management strategies and suggested other ways of doing things. They began looking for cost cutting measures and efficiencies and other ways to become more productive. They bought in. The Code of Honor became a badge of honor itself, a watch word in the company that every new driver had to not only adhere to but also to believe in.

I just came across a fantastic Code of Honor that I am going to post here. It is from Mike Maloney and his GoldSilver group. It is the best Code of Honor I have ever seen and I am going to use it to guide me, not just in my business but also in life. If you like it, I would suggest that you might want to look at some of the work that Mike and others have been doing at the Elevation Group as they help to educate people on the impending economic disaster.

Code of Honor

1. Mission comes first, team second, individual third

2. Always  represent the company to the utmost of our ability.

3.  Respect and support teammates, company, and mission

4.  Be on time, keep commitments.

 5.  Communicate through proper channels.

6. Resolve issues calmly and promptly with empathy.

 7.  Learn from mistakes and celebrate all wins.

 8.  Lead by example, living what we preach.

 

Doesn’t that just about cover it all? Can you imagine what it would be like if we all began living our lives and conducting our affairs like that? I can’t wait to see that.

Till Next Time….
