Fair Trade Principles

It makes you feel good in your skin when selling

The life is what you make out of it. You can be noble and wise trader/seller/salesman.

Generally, I don't like selling and trading. There's some psychological barrier in my head that subconsiously connects the craft of trade with something dishonest and negative.

If you don't like selling stuff, then don't do it and live it to folks who are born salesman.

But there is solution to your sales worries. You can actually be successful in selling if you connect selling with something that is honest and truthful.

Your answer to this is FAIR TRADE. It will make you peace of mind. No bullshit and no fake intentions. Be transparent and open. Make the process and price fair.

The principles of fair trade


Fair trade definition:

'' Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers – especially in the South.

Fair Trade organisations have a clear commitment to Fair Trade as the principal core of their mission. They, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade."

The Corporate Advocatus Diaboli

Imagine if there was such a thing as a corporate Advocatus Diaboli … what would the role look like?

Formal strategic decisions made in the absence of the Advocatus Diaboli would not be seen as valid.

The Advocatus Diaboli would enforce a critical distance on decisions – where the outcome cannot be satisfactorily explained additional justification would need to be provided.

Indaba - negotiation method

It’s called an “indaba” (pronounced IN-DAR-BAH), and is used to simplify discussions between many parties.

An indaba is designed to allow every party to voice its opinion, but still arrive at a consensus quickly. It works because opinions and arguments can only be aired in a particular way:

Instead of repeating stated positions, each party is encouraged to speak personally and state their “red lines,” which are thresholds that they don’t want to cross. But while telling others their hard limits, they are also asked to provide solutions to find a common ground.
