Her multi-faceted expertise also includes having had her own private practice, written various research papers and magazine articles (that were published), and had several TV, radio and talk engagements over the last 20 years. Charissa has spoken at conferences around the world, and lectured at numerous universities in South Africa. After consulting in various institutions and working closely with teams, Charissa realised that although orgaizations have Integrity as their core value, many employees do not understand what it means to apply this value in their everyday life.
Charissa Bloomberg extensively researched this topic to see if it can be trained and has consequently written her own training course, developed material and has been very popular giving talks on Radio and TV on developing Integrity.
She facilitates the development of leadership internationally. As such, has recently decided to leverage her extensive knowledge and networks to focus on empowering the corporate world and youth to revisit the way we conduct ourselves in our everyday life.
Charissa uses her large media network coverage to educate, inspire and uplift, on a large-scale forum and uses humour, honesty and shares her own experiences as examples.
Raising the integrity meter. Having your own personal code to live by is crucial in today’s market. Because integrity is such a rare commodity, when you have it, you will be sought after. People will want to do business with you, you will get the promotion and stakeholders will invest.
The repercussions of low integrity are damaging and far-reaching. Organizations that are perceived by their employees to have low integrity garner feelings of resentment and experience high employee turnover. Staff, if they are of good calibre, are likely to find another job, leaving the organization with ‘dead wood’. These days, the immediacy of social media spells certain doom for organizations whose customers perceive them to have low integrity.
When an organizations reputation is damaged, it’s almost irrevocable. With the ongoing rise of corruption, comes the greater need for transparency and integrity practices. A reputation takes years to build, but can be easily lost; Once trust and credibility is lost, it’s a long road to recovery. So what really happens in organizations when an employee or leader has an integrity lapse by not acting with integrity?
What is the one thing that we want from people we do business with? To trust them. What is the one thing that’s lacking today? Trust and that is part of integrity. People often refer to the “structural integrity of buildings”. This refers to the safety or reliability of the building. Nobody would work inside a building that was not structurally safe, but millions of people work in companies that have no certification of assurance of the integrity of their people. The organizations success depends on the integrity of its leaders.
