The Power of Principle for Entrepreneurs

In An Entrepreneur Who Gives on Handshake 2.0, we quoted Jim Flowers from a comment on his post on the Four Hour Work Week.  He wrote, "I don't see anything there related to giving, only taking."

In a follow-up post, The power of principle, Jim wrote:

As an entrepreneur, you are preparing to launch your own company.  Perhaps you have already launched.  In either case, I encourage you to weigh in heavily on the side of broad responsibility for future corporate actions.  Here are some principles to consider, tweaked for appropriateness to the business context:

  • The fundamental importance of honesty, integrity, and responsibility;
  • The inherent worth and dignity of every single person;
  • The importance of justice, equity, and compassion in all relationships;
  • The enlightening power of a continuing, free, and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right and the responsibility of each individual to act in good conscience in moderating behaviors, both personal and corporate;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence upon which we all depend for survival.
