“A leader with a track record of success, marked by an extraordinary ability to improve efficiency, profit margins, and productivity in complex environments with limited resources.”
“He was a man of principle and compassion whose generosity of spirit brightened the lives of others.”
We strive to develop a powerful resume, we expect a powerful eulogy.
We scrutinize resumes for skill sets, we hope for integrity in their owners.
We compensate others to develop our marketable skills, we assume our character is adequate.
We spotlight our professional accomplishments, we dismiss our personal shortcomings.
Are we getting this wrong?
