The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office. - Dwight D. Eisenhower
This may seem like an obvious one, but in our experience the willingness to over-inflate skills is a reality of our job market.
We don’t want to sound like your mother, but lying is not and cannot be tolerated in the professional world. This is as true in the work place as it is for the information on your LinkedIn profile, or within your resume.
Not only is it very easy to check and confirm just about anything using the Internet, it is also a sign of how ethical (or unethical) you are. Appearing untrustworthy is never good for business.
McManus Consulting does a thorough check of every associate's history, including references and education. This is as much for the peace of mind of our clients, as it is to make sure that the quality of the professionals we engage is never compromised.
Our insistence on quality and honesty has served us well for over 20 years and we insist that every associate with which we engage follows the same ethos.
