BNI is built on a set of guiding principles which form the foundation on which members interact, conduct themselves and fulfill their goals. At BNI, we're Changing the Way the World Does Business®.
Be willing to give first, before you expect to gain. Like the farmer who must plant seeds before crops will grow, you must invest first, giving unconditionally yields the best results.
Traditions are your foundation while innovations are your opportunities. Always keep your feet firmly planted with your traditions while you reach to the sky to create innovation.
No one is successful by themselves. Becoming good at developing relationships, and building a network is the key to success in business and in life.
Your value grows as you develop your knowledge and skills. Create a curriculum based on the person you want to become and follow that curriculum to get yourself there.
The only way to build trust is to make promises and keep them. Be the one that follows through, even when it appears no one is looking.
BNI provides an environment that enables you to surround yourself with people who want to help you succeed.
Recognition is the fuel that builds organizations and societies. The person who masters the art of recognition attracts a strong network.
