Bias, BS and Bluster are very bad for business

Perhaps the longest election campaign in history comes to an end in Australia on Saturday.

Three things have stood out for me Bias, BS and Bluster. 

The media, particularly the Murdoch papers, have been totally biased against the government. All sides have spoken so much BS, particularly about budgets, there is a stench in the air. And bluster has been so bad it seems to me the entire population has switched off.

I am not a member of any political party and never will be. All political brands are tarnished.

There are lessons here for business. 
We all stand for something and a key to success in our businesses is the people we want to do business with must know what we stand for. It is easy however for passion to become obsession. It is easy to say things that stretch the truth. It is easy to get on a high horse and confidence gets perceived as arrogance.

Take time out to check everything the story of your business and how it is being told. Quickly remove any bias, BS or bluster because they are very bad for your business.

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
