In this episode, Spike and Meath discuss:

  • The importance of values and ethics in a company culture and in your individual life.
  • The values and things that make veterans stand out from the everyday individual on the street.
  • The importance of ethics and values to protect those individuals whom a company purports to represent.
  • Developing a respectful belief system and application of core human values.

Key Takeaways:

  • The three guiding principles:
    • 1 - have a core respect for human values which determine the moral threshold for business activities,
    • 2 – have a respect for local traditions and local people,
    • 3 – context matters when deciding what is right and what is wrong.
  • The importance, as a leader, of seeing the diamond inside each individual, even if it is still rough.
  • It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.
  • The more aware and attentive you are to your own physical and mental health in the moment to moment, the more safe is your contribution going to be in a working environment.
