Corporate image, or reputation, describes the manner in which a company, its activities, and its products or services are perceived by outsiders. In a competitive business climate, many businesses actively work to create and communicate a positive image to their customers, shareholders, the financial community, and the general public. A company that mismanages or ignores its image is likely to encounter a variety of problems.
The right image creates a bond of trust between you and the marketplace, enables you to achieve your goals, and boost your earnings. The wrong image can block achievement of your goals and deplete your bank account.
Some of the warning signs that a business might have an image problem include high employee turnover, the disappearance of major customers, a drop in stock value, and poor relationships with vendors or government officials. If an image problem is left unaddressed, a company might find many of its costs of doing business rising dramatically, including the costs of product development, sales support, employee wages, and shareholder dividends. In addition, since the majority of consumers base their purchase decisions at least partly on trust, current and future sales levels are likely to suffer as well.
Great leaders exhibit the type of behaviour and conduct that will earn their employees and clients respect, admiration and trust. The best leaders are strong coaches who can truly motivate and support their people to achieve exceptional service, organizational success and profitability.
