Last week there was a form to be filled..and I was asked to think of two names for each of these qualities. When it came to honesty there was a catch – it had to be a person below the age of 50. I just could not go beyond ONE.
It had to be a person with whom I have had a business deal, a person whom I knew closely, a person who had an opportunity to be corrupt but look clean, …sad could not find a second person in 30 years of business. Searched through with great effort but could not find the SECOND guy / gal.
Truthfulness also posed a challenge – if white lies, harmless lies, …were all clearly called by their first name, it was tough.
Kindness was a little easier even in the younger age group…but Graciousness was difficult.
Whew it was tough! The qualities required for a successful businessman is what they were seeking. The end result was a successful ‘entrepreneur’ was supposed to have kindness, graciousness, truthfulness, honesty, nice words,…I did not see any of the ‘hard skills’ – like networking, mathematics, pr, contacts, …etc.
will add more ..week end reading material though 🙂
