Product Description

Employers look for two things when hiring or promoting people: knowledge and skill. They rarely, if ever, consider the character of job candidates and current employees. But the key to extraordinary success in business is character. The Good Ones presents ten crucial qualities that high-character employees regularly practice and that enhance employee satisfaction, relationships with clients, and the bottom line.

You’ll read new stories from managers and employees across the U.S. and beyond who reveal how honesty, courage, loyalty, and patience have helped their organizations maintain an edge over the competition.   Each chapter is devoted to a single quality of character and ends with questions that employers can use to hire and promote the Good Ones–people who are consistently honest, accountable, fair, and grateful.

Whether you’re looking to bring new people into your organization or are seeking a job or promotion yourself, The Good Ones will help you appreciate in practical terms why character is the missing link to excellence.
