Six Principles for Relationship
and Business Success by Roy Fisher

Reflecting upon the many things I have learned throughout my military service, banking career and life in general, I've found developing positive relationships - both personally and professionally - to be essential.

Show Respect: Always treat people with respect. As the saying goes, treat others the way you want to be treated. Treating everyone respectfully will earn you respect in return.

Be Kind: This basic idea can be overlooked in business, but setting aside any negative personal feelings benefits everyone in the long run. Even when dealing with a difficult interpersonal situation, kindness is contagious.

Listen Carefully: Sincerely listen with the intent of full understanding. Ask questions to ensure the message is received as it was meant to be given.

Have Integrity:
A person of integrity is honest and stands on a solid moral foundation. To possess integrity is to be whole and undivided in your principles. People resonate and respond well to authenticity.

Share Credit: Give credit where credit is due. Be generous in acknowledging those who participated in the effort. What is given together is exponentially more than the sum of each contributing part.

Trust your Team: Place your full trust in your team and make sure you have their trust. Mutual trust within your team creates a culture of reliability and accountability.

I've found applying these six principles cultivate lasting, mutually-beneficial relationships, which leads to success in business.
