Sincerity In Business
Doing what is right with transparent motives
To practice Sincerity I will:
- take responsibility for my own actions
- always mean what I say
- respect others’ opinions
- not take advantage of other people
- be my truest self
How much of yourself do you bring to work? I always struggled with how much faith to bring to work. My spirituality governs my daily life, so it was impossible not to bring it. Still, I decided I needed to be sensitive to working with people with different or no spirituality. I chose a single religious item to display in my office. When I spoke about church-related activities, I was careful to avoid preaching and politics. I offered to pray for people if they shared a concern with me. Sometimes I felt like I was holding back, leaving me feeling insincere. When I realized that I needed to balance Sincerity with Acceptance, Cooperation, and Humility, I felt much more comfortable with my decision. I hope that how I conducted my professional life aligned with the faith-filled personality I chose to share.
