Be of good character....



worked with a guy who found a diamond necklace on the floor… and turned it in. I’ve seen employees walking across a casino floor take time to push in the chairs by slot machines… even though it wasn’t their job. And an executive I know used to regularly leave a crumpled-up piece of paper on the floor where employees walked on the way to their break… to see if anyone would pick it up. These are examples of how people should act when nobody’s looking, behaviors that can make a difference even though they’re easy to overlook or ignore. We often think of integrity as relating mostly to big and important things, but these are examples of small things that make the world a little better. Companies have values about these kinds of things and employees need to know how important they are: managers need to talk about them, model them, and create an environment where everyone knows how important it is to be good, all the time. Shine some light on what good character means today.
