A Question of Integrity

business integrityWe are going to talk about attitude.  One of the first things we talk about as Christian entrepreneurs is integrity.

Integrity is one of those things that you know it when you see it, but it is hard to really nail down.

I want to make it as simple as possible and define integrity with a question and break that down into a statement:

Do you do what you say you will do? But, it does not stop there.  Anything less than valuing others as children of God is a loss of integrity.

With that simple definition in mind, let’s branch out on the various edges of the question and really ask yourself how your level of integrity is doing:

  • Do you give the highest quality to your customers as promised, even if it cost you a bit extra?
  • Do you do your best to get your products to your customers as expected and quickly fix any problems by going above and beyond to make up any errors?
  • Do you pay the extra hours when an employee forgets to put them on their time card even though you know he/she worked additional hours?
  • Do you pay what you should pay even if you are charged a different price from a supplier?*
  • Do you show up when you say you will show up even if an emergency pops up?*

*We will talk about character in our next article.

Integrity is something that Christian business owners should be known for.  A customer should never feel ripped off or slighted.  They should never feel that advertising and marketing leads them astray.  They should never feel like the business treats them anything less than a valuable child of God.

Anything less than valuing others as children of God is a loss of integrity. #ChristianBusiness #ChristianEntrepreneur #Integrity Click To Tweet
