The Concorde Capital Values

I have been a member of the Concorde Capital team for five years. In addition to projects related to human resources, I also manage the company’s operations. I strongly believe that carving out a career in a company requires ongoing personal growth, leadership skills, and ability to work 24/7.

Before joining Concorde, I worked in diverse industries ranging from information technology to agribusiness, but only at Concorde did I realize what a trust-based corporate culture is. Trust-based culture shows, first and foremost, that confidence between a leader and the team is not governed by orders or formalized procedures. 
Every employee is an accomplished expert and holds a special position. This by no means implies that we hire only stars of the financial markets. Most of my peers started at entry-level positions and climbed the Concorde ladder because of their commitment to self-development and leadership skills.

If, say, an employee was unwilling to call a client in the U.S. out of concern for their ability to communicate in English, but with time managed to tame their fear and communicate successfully, then that’s a prime example of growth! Concorde takes note and rewards accordingly. Employees see every new challenge, project, or task as an opportunity.

Once defined, an objective must be achieved and a task must be accomplished. Nobody at Concorde leaves their job or responsibility to others. At the end of each reported period (six and twelve months), every employee is evaluated by key performance indicators.

Productivity. The process should be organized in order to concentrate all the team’s energy on achieving the defined objectives. 
Openness. Our supervisors demonstrate respect to team members in conversation, who are entitled to their own views, and are prepared to accept another point of view if they show conclusively that their idea is useful to business.

The general director is always open to employees. When people show sincere mutual respect in their communications, feel sure that peers will never engage in tricks or make trouble, know they do not work under threat of reproof or memos of violations, even complicated tasks can be accomplished easily. 
Flexibility. When changes are ongoing, it is very important to learn to “keep the balance,” to use opportunities with the utmost efficiency and never waste energy on futile resistance.

“We achieve the impossible” is our motto. Don’t talk about what you cannot do; think about how you can accomplish the assigned task. Inspiration and Creativity. If a project starts with inspiration and is carried out enthusiastically, it will inevitably deliver excellent results.
