Message du président de Carlex aux clients, aux membres de l’équipe et aux collègues du monde entier

Leadership

Une vision inspirante pour l’avenir de Carlex

Nous croyons en l’importance d’un leadership fondé sur des valeurs.

Le leadership traditionnel tend à se focaliser vers l’intérieur et de bas en haut. Dans le leadership fondé sur des valeurs, les leaders dirigent pour être au service des autres. Ces leaders sont plus attentifs aux contributions et aux besoins des personnes qui les entourent plutôt qu’à leurs propres préoccupations.

Nos leaders ont des qualités fondamentales : ils écoutent, sollicitent l’avis des autres, admettent leurs erreurs, font preuve d’empathie, invitent à la confiance, agissent avec intégrité, traitent les autres avec respect, soutiennent le travail d’équipe et montrent l’exemple, pour n’en citer que quelques-unes. Grâce à ces valeurs fondatrices, nos leaders approchent leur travail avec humilité au quotidien.

Nous avons choisi le leadership fondé sur les valeurs, pour que chez Carlex, chacun puisse se développer, atteindre ses objectifs professionnels dans un environnement où il puisse gagner la confiance, viser l’excellence et établir des relations durables.
