CODE OF ETHICS

ENDURING STANDARDS, PRINCIPLES AND VALUES

  • Executive and Managerial-Level Chiefs of Staff, Executive Life Managers and C-Suite Assistants uphold the principles of good moral character and personal integrity, and model appropriate social skills and values.

 

  • We build cross-cultural relationships, adapt our behavior to changing circumstances, and treat our colleagues with respect, courtesy, empathy, and candor.

 

  • We are accountable for our actions and take responsibility for the consequences of our decisions.

 

  • We are vested by our employers with a trust and responsibility requiring the highest ideals of professional service.

 

  • We protect our employers’ right to privacy and the confidentiality of our companies’ business practices.

 

  • We are committed to protect the interests of the Executive(s) we support, our organizations and the welfare of our peers and colleagues.

 

  • We refuse to cooperate with or condone by silence the actions of coworkers or employers who misuse their positions for personal, non-professional advantage.

 

  • We value the principles of self-discipline and personal development and the need to evolve from strategic support to manager to leader.

 

  • We establish the highest personal performance standards and strive for excellence by continuing professional and educational development and skill building.

 

  • As workplace business partners, we enhance our employer’s (and our) reputation by representing the organization with tact, a polished presentation, and excellence in professional performance.

 

  • We strive to maintain and enhance the dignity, status, competence, and standards of the profession.
