A business owner is faced with challenges throughout the day.  It is non-stop.  A few of the challenges that every manager, CEO, leader or business owner experience are:

  • Managing people
  • Dealing with obstacles
  • Building and maintaining infrastructure
  • Implementing quality control
  • Handling change
  • Introducing new products while re-evaluating the old ones
  • Determining the best course of action
  • Financial structure

How these challenges are handled shows their ethical character.  The key to being an effective leader is to have moral values.  A business owner’s success depends upon it.

Warren Buffet, Bill Gates and Marcus Lemonis are a few people that come to mind when the term leader of moral values comes into play.  As you watch them throughout the years you will see that they radiate quality, control (not domineering), passion, infrastructure and a product or service that is conducive for the common good.  Their actions always seem to be based upon people, values, product or services and process.

There are a few old proverbs that are tied to value:  ‘All money is not good money’ and ‘What you do for money determines your character.’  Both of these proverbs indicate that depending upon your values it dictates how you make money.   Some people make money at any costs.  When that next ideal project comes your way, how will you weigh your options?

How will you lead in making that defining decision?  How will you lead your team in getting the job done? How will your values and leadership skills play into the elements previously mentioned?  In everything you do consider being a leader of moral values.
