How does politics relate to your business?

Linda Darby-Dowers,
Chief Executive Officer
With an election year right around the corner, are you beginning to evaluate the potential candidates? What do you look for? Ideally, I want someone with integrity who shares my values. I want to feel as though I can trust them and believe what they are saying.

Don’t panic. I am not going to start a political debate.

The qualities I look for in a political leader are also what I look for in a business partner. When reviewing your business strategies do you stick with suppliers you've worked with for years, even though they don’t really care about the business you are running? Or do you find a company that has integrity and shares the same values that you and your company have worked so hard to build?

I encourage you to work with organizations who share your values, care about the quality of service you provide and want to help you grow.

Just like a political leader, these companies may not tell you everything you want to hear, but they will tell you everything you need to hear. They are the organizations that will help you grow and help you succeed in our profession.
