I came across this information at www.crystalinks.com had the definitions of the 4 agreements and their relevance to business by Dennis Cannelis. I just had to add that info here.
Agreement 1 BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
Most importantly, to be impeccable with your word is to never use it against yourself. Putting yourself down will stop the creative process in your business. With other, speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Your word is your bond you will create consistency in the delivery of your service or product, and create a trust with your clientele, empowering you to expand. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth.
Agreement 2 DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
In business, as a leader, you have to let things roll off your back – nothing others do to you or say to you is because of you. It is their perception or belief. Being attached to your opinion is where freedom is lost. When you are immune to the opinion of others, you can clearly focus on objective avoiding drama and time spent at the water cooler.
Agreement 3 – DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
It is critical to your business to communicate with others as clearly as you can with your intentions to avoid misunderstandings. In my eBook, Small Business Success by Design, I talk about the importance of follow-up and verifying the communication links with employees and clients to firm up next steps, actions, or consequences. Also, have the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want from your employees, vendors, and clients. You will see huge strides in your business success when you do this.
Agreement 4 ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
You will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
