Being Global: Post #5--Global Citizenship
a. This one is tough because competition pushes some people to give up the wide view in favor of personal gain—in place of personal integrity. True global leaders resist the pressure of shareholders to pursue solely financial gains. They do not condone bribery, skirting the law, or dancing on the edge of ethics. Rather, these leaders take one giant step toward the side of decency and global concern.
b. Social Mission: Even the most business minded of companies must be socially minded and involved if they want to become global citizens. In short our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is global, not just local.
