Memento mori – Remember death
When you’re thinking of joining any group or organisation, the most obvious question is ‘why?’ In other words, what will you get and what are you expected to give? Simply liking the sound of something isn’t enough to make a commitment - you need to get specific about the purpose.
Click on any corporate website, and the chances are you’ll find a page devoted to their company ethos. Why? Having a defined corporate ethos sets a culture, tone and character, creating a framework for individuals to come together and work as a collective. It’s also a reflection of the business’ core values and objectives.
Business leadership has never been a walk in the park, but in 2018 it is perhaps more challenging than ever. Business leaders are expected to set culture, attract and nurture talent, be salespeople, marketers, finance-minded, epitomise the brand and somehow achieve a personal balance between work and life.
