The Compass Charter is an ethical code of conduct for people, companies and organisations. It offers a set of four keys to help you to work with emotional integrity and enjoy life.
And leads, in a simple and natural way, to the experience of true leadership and harmony. Step by step. Day by day. Smile by smile.
I go for authenticity by acknowledging my own potential and that of others. I aim to achieve this by showing and rewarding open and transparent behaviour.
I go for responsibility by acting in a well-considered and responsible manner. I aim to achieve this by being aware of my environment.
I go for commitment by striving for a natural balance when I connect with others. I aim to achieve this by taking no more and no less than the space that belongs to me materially, physically, mentally and emotionally.
I go for trust by showing confidence in my surroundings. I aim to achieve this by interacting in a friendly, open and sincere manner, and by asking the same of others.
I think that the common acknowledgement of human values in our day to day work could be a strong leverage for change. The intention to be conscient about some ethic guidelines and to try to translate them in your own behavior, can make a big difference. Certainly if they are shareable in a network of those who feel the same about it.

Wherever you encounter authenticity, responsibility, commitment and trust, you are also likely to come across beauty, goodness and righteousness. They are signs that give colour and depth to living together as a community. That is our goal. I could say the same thing but slightly differently: True beauty is a question of ‘being’ and not ‘having’. True beauty teaches you the language of unity, the language of smiles and flowers, and above all the language of the quiet things and of ‘giving’. It’s about learning time and again to opt for the compass that points in this opposite direction.
