The Scout Law is a good rule for business

Yesterday, Deborah and I discussed the Scout Law, which required a quick refresher course. I could remember many, but not all of the laws, and I had some out of order.

Here’s a reminder:Scout Emblem
A Scout is

  • Trustworthy
  • Loyal
  • Helpful
  • Friendly
  • Courteous
  • Kind
  • Obedient
  • Cheerful
  • Thrifty
  • Brave
  • Clean
  • Reverent

We make a mistake, thinking the Scout Law applies only to Boy Scouts. Imagine if we applied the Scout Law to business. Think about Enron and MCI. If the people running these corporations had lived by the Scout Law (or Business Law), today they would be famous for something entirely different.

Just a thought.
