Our Core Ideas

[big] business

big_140The seemingly smallest things can have the greatest impact: a smile at the essential moment…a door held open…a conversation over coffee…a reliable friend.

Large scale change is rarely the result of large-scale effortsRather it grows from the compounded actions of many people who responsibily impact their family, community, economy, and nation for the better.  This determined leadership from the grassroots to the corner office stears us towards a better future through untiring consistency and right action at decisive moments.

Regardless of size, being [big] is what matters…a decision to be intentionally good…because what we stand for, how we treat people, and how we do what we do really does make all the difference.

Business is business. Or is it?

beacgobatics_280As profound changes reveal our inter-connectedness, an old truth is becoming increasingly evident: business is far more than just business.  In fact, business is often the most integrated area of society, impacting and being impacted by every aspect of our lives broadly and deeply.  As a result, businesses are in a unique position  to make a real difference – in individuals, in families, in communities, and in society – and reap substantial rewards as they intentionally do so.

This is what it means to be a [big] business.  It has nothing to do with size.  It has everything to do with being intentionally good – good for the business, good for the people who participate in it, and good in ways that expand beyond its boundaries.

ROI of Relationships

The “Business Is Business” approach is built on an inflated view of transactions.  [big] businesses possess an exceptionally high view of people.  They elevate relationships, and for good reason: transactions are over when each party gets what they want; relationships last and provide compounding, reciprocal value as they deal in the currency of trust.

This relationship-oriented approach produces exceptional, multi-faceted Return On Investment (ROI).  By engaging the Whole Human, [big] businesses draw extraordinary capacity from the participants in their market and company, efficiently delivering and exceeding business targets. Moreover, as [big] businesses grow their people, they produce cascading returns everywhere their people carry [big] principles.  The power of [big] businesses radiates outward by the direct impact of intentionally good operations and the indirect effect of its inspirational example.

Connect deeply and genuinely with their market – cost effectively == Enduring, participative customer relationships
