“In looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if they don’t have the first, the other two will kill you.” ~ Warren Buffet

Dictionary.com defines integrity three ways:

  1. adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty,
  2. the state of being whole, entire, or undiminished, and
  3. sound, unimpaired, or perfect condition.

When most people talk about integrity, they are referring to the first definition – honesty. Obviously honesty is at the crux of the Md7 core values. But the second and third definitions above are equally important because, much like the structural integrity of a cell tower, each of the Md7 core values must have its own integrity in order to successfully carry its assigned equipment plus a bird or two.

To achieve “structural integrity” at Md7, we promote six core values:

Just as with the cell tower, each of the Md7 core values must have its own integrity to be true. If a member of the Md7 Team exemplifies all of the first five values, but lacks integrity – the values as a whole are worthless.
