Trustworthy. Integrity. Loyalty. Respect.
These characteristics are sought and highly valued in organizations with the best talent. Those in management extend trust to determine the level of integrity of their direct reports. It takes research and time to build these relationships with people who possess these traits.
We seek these values as we entrust our families to caregivers. We extend trust to merchants to give us a fair price for our purchases. We discover the value of friendships and personal relationships over time with those who display these qualities.
