Canadian Christian Business Federation

A CRISIS IN LEADERSHIP

If ever there was a need for integrity, its now.

 
Political leaders, civic leaders, and well-known personalities seem to be falling like flies these days, the result of various accusations of sexual misconduct, harassment or verbal abuse.
Sins of youth are being remembered and broadcast across national media.
Christians are not immune.
If ever there was a need for integrity in business and in leadership, it's now. How would you stand up to scrutiny when it comes to honesty and integrity in dealing with employees and customers?
This office receives occasional phone calls from people who wonder if the CCBF is like a "Christian Better Business Bureau" because they have a few issues with a business owner whose ethics don't match up to his or her profession as a Christian.
For all of us who call ourselves 'Christian', we are called to live up to our name.
