Mark Zokle, a multi-million dollar closer, motivational speaker, and prominent businessman, recently sat down to compare traits that most business leaders either have inherently or develop over time. The following are highlights from the conversation.
Q: What is the best way to let my employees know that I expect ethical behavior all the time?
Mark Zokle: Your ethics policy is something to discuss during initial interviews with candidates. Make sure there is no misunderstanding and that you feel completely comfortable with each individual before you bring them on the team. Try to set a standard for yourself that is higher than that which you place on your employees; demonstrating your beliefs every day is the best way to be a role model.
