In The Virtuosa Organisation we examine the phenomenon of disconnects between an organisation's stated and actual values.A recent case in point: For more than 5 years Volkswagen has been installing pollution control software specifically designed to fool regulators in the USA – the controls only kick-in when their diesel cars are tested for emissions. (The practice probably extends to other countries, and to other car manufacturers). Volkswagen’s international values include integrity ('Our everyday actions are based upon an internally-consistent framework of principles and values. We understand that integrity is more than just a word … it is a daily practice') and trust ("Our employees, our clients and their clients rely on us to comply with all policies, laws and ethical/professional codes in the performance of our work; and we consistently honor that reliance")!
Listen to John Maxwell explain the word VIRTUOUS
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy -Hamlet
Look at the animals roaming the forest: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the birds flying across the sky: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the tiny insects crawling in the grass: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the fish in the river and sea: God's spirit dwells within them. There is no creature on earth in whom God is absent. . . . When God pronounced that his creation was good, it was not only that his hand had fashioned every creature; it was that his breath had brought every creature to life. Look too at the great trees of the forest; look even at your crops. God's spirit is present within all plants as well. The presence of God's spirit in all living things is what makes them beautiful; and if we look with God's eyes, nothing on the earth is ugly - The Letters of Pelagius as quoted by J. Philip Newell, Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality (Paulist Press: 1997), 10-11.
When media and the digital world become omnipresent, their influence can stop people from learning how to live wisely, to think deeply and to love generously - Pope Francis
