It all comes down to character…the person we truly are. Your character determines everything – your ambition, your leadership abilities, the way you relate to other people. Due to the differences in character, some people struggle to make decisions, to be firm with others, to be persistent. Others easily do these things. Some people become irrational during stressful situations, and others glide through stress-filled dilemmas calmly and rationally. The difference lies within the individual’s character.
It is significant to know that the idea that any person can be trained to handle any job or task is not true. Depending on the job or task, certain individuals can be trained to perform successfully – while others cannot. In the workplace, it is up to the person in charge to understand the needs and boundaries of others; needs and boundaries that are defined by a person’s character. Recognizing that every person is different and needs support in different ways is the first step in reaching success.
Inside and outside of the workplace, having an understanding of character will allow you to feel more comfortable. Frustration with others is decreased, and relationships improve.
Embarking upon the journey of understanding starts now – with you.
