Your skills/ the skills sought by an employer do matter. They can get you in the door. But in the real world of a decent life and the real world of a productive and stable workforce, the individual’s/ worker’s CHARACTER matters more than all the skills combined. This holds true for the worker and the supervisor. It is a two-way street. CHARACTER TRAITS (The “Six pillars of character” from Josephson Institute) on which judgments should be made: Trustworthiness Respect Responsibility Fairness Caring Citizenship Words that further define each of the six pillars include: Conscience, Honor, Reputation, Truth, Commitment, Dependability, Resolves Issues, Your Word, Duty, Consequences, Obligations, Rational Thinker/ Actions.
