You Cannot Buy Character
I ran across a post on character by Shamelle at The Enhance Life blog -- that brought back memories of my old ball coach. He would say if you don't have character, you don't have nothin'. Character is "...what you are when no one is looking." It's easy for some to fake it when others are looking, but the true test is what do you do -- when the crowd has moved on. Do you think differently towards your staff or team when you are reviewing team dynamics? Do you put down the sales clerk at your favorite retail outlet, while preaching the importance of customer service at your office? Just something to think about.
