For any relationship in life to be truly successful, there must be a certain amount of give and take. A good relationship is a two-way street, whether the relationship is personal or professional. Any time the traffic is all one-way, or all give and no take, the relationship is bound to suffer and ultimately fail. With this in mind, Frédérique Constant has made cooperation one of the core values upon which the company commits to base all its relationships. Our employees are willing to cooperate with each other, even when that means they have to adjust and/or do more. All disciplines need to work in harmony and closely together to realize success together. Everybody understands that accountability is a cornerstone of successful cooperation. The company makes every effort to provide a happy, healthy environment. Our employees cooperate with each other in a spirit of teamwork, and by doing so they bring honor and success to Frédérique Constant as a company and to themselves as individuals.

Complications: Not on my watch
After a decade of muscular dominance, feature-packed sports watches and complication-laden wrist trophies are being put aside in favor of simpler models. Think sleek and elegant timepieces that are smaller than a sundial, and can be operated without a Ph.D. Read more…
To be truly successful in business and in life, I believe that we must always be honest and open with our customers, our agents, our distributors and our employees. I believe that openness and honesty make for the best relationships because it leads to trust and faith. Strong and positive relationships that are open and honest are a big part of what differentiates Frédérique Constant companies from most other companies in the Swiss watch industry. Strong relationships allow us to accomplish much more than we would be able to otherwise. Without honesty and integrity, our company could not truly succeed. A key ingredient in strong relationships is to develop emotional connections. It’s important to always act with integrity in your relationships, to be compassionate, friendly, loyal; to make sure that you do the right thing and treat your relationships well. The hardest thing to do is to build trust, but if the trust exists, you can accomplish so much more.
In any relationship, it’s important to be a good listener as well as a good communicator. Open and honest communication is the best foundation for any relationship. But remember, at the end of the day, it’s not what you say or what you do, it’s how you make people feel that matters the most. In order for someone to feel good about a relationship, he/she must know that the other person truly cares about them, both personally and professionally. At Frédérique Constant, we embrace diversity in thoughts, opinions, and backgrounds. We must always listen with sincerity and give new ideas equal ground on which to stand and be tested. The more widespread and diverse your relationships are, the bigger the positive impact you can make on our company, and the more valuable you will be to our company. We want everyone to always try to go the extra mile in encouraging thorough, complete, and effective communication.
We resolve to communicate openly, to respect others, to be fair with everyone, to shun politics and to maintain a down-to-earth approach in our efforts to interact with each other. Furthermore, it is very important for us that all ‘walk the talk’, do what you say you are going to do. As the company grows, communication becomes more and more important. Everyone needs to understand how his/her team connects to the big picture of what we’re trying to accomplish. No matter how good the communication is, it’s one of the weakest spots in any organization.
Integrity, Open Communication, Transparent, Down to earth
Respect for others, No Politics, Fairness.
We are in the process to plan strategy for 2015 and I would like to share with you our activities to support more heart related charities.

The foundation of a successful Daily Huddle or Weekly Meeting is a great facilitator. Below are some characteristics and best practices of some of our most successful executive teams:
Be dedicated. A good facilitator is dedicated to the regular meeting rhythm. Weekly Meetings and Daily Huddles should happen on their designated days/times without fail. If a person is not able to attend, they should still prepare by doing their Weekly Meeting Prep and sending their Victories, Priorites and Stucks to the Daily Huddle facilitator. A good facilitator holds the team accountable to being prepared. Read more…
