Do you have a code of conduct? Is it getting you where you want to go?
Wherever there has been engineers engaged in some mutual endeavor, there has been an engineering code of conduct. Whenever any engineer today engages in any engineering activity, he or she is guided by a code of conduct, of which they may be blissfully unaware.
So What Is A Code of Conduct About?
A code of conduct is about the human criteria you believe are critical to getting on and staying on the path to the real achievement you have envisioned. It is what informs and drives the everyday ways of thinking and action in your organization that you believe are necessary to make progress on your mission every day.
"The only code that makes a difference is the one that has become a part of who those people are - their character." - Lee Thayer
Questions to Consider:
- How do you formulate a code of conduct, that widely internalized, will be what is needed to get you where you want to go?
- How do you get that code of conduct widely and deeply internalized?
