Domestic and international experience shows that those companies can gain competitive advantage and work more efficiently / successfully, where the leader seeks to become a conscious leader (organizational culture that supports value creation, organizational learning, feedback, employee satisfaction, two way open, clear and honest communication). The conscious leader strives to continuously develop his / her personal qualities, competencies, leadership style and attitudes so that he / she can convey a value system to the colleagues, that will help the employees identify and engage with the company, which will sooner or later be reflected in business results.

Customers usually match the brand with higher quality, that can better meet their expectations than the anonymous so-called white products or at least during regular purchasing decisions, they first consider familiar brand-name products that they associate with that particular company.
