Be A Leader Of Integrity

Be A Leader Of Integrity

So this isn’t a sales pitch for a company I recently used.  But it is a pitch to those of you who run your own business or are a leader in a business.  And it’s about integrity.

Here’s what happened.

Our home HVAC system was the original from 1984 — the year our the house was built.  While it had been running fine during the 8 years we’ve lived here, both the air conditioning and the heating unit died within a week of each other.  (Personally, I think they planned it all along).

After a few bids, we settled on Priority Heating and Cooling in the Twin Cities.  Long story short, they came out and went to work.

While I was upstairs reading, two of the guys were one floor below me.  One was the expert, the other was a trainee.  I couldn’t help but overhear the conversation and took notice of how the one mentored the other.

But here’s what I want you to take from this post.  The mentor said,

“An important thing to know is that you never, never, never damage the homeowner’s property.  But the most important thing to know is that you always, always, always leave the area you’re working in looking better than how you found it.” 

Awesome instruction for any leader and remember, they didn’t know I could hear them.  If that is how the company passes down leadership, excellence, and integrity, I’d hire them again.

That’s excellence.  That’s integrity.  And yes, you should hire them in you live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

Peace,
