Looking at the challenges in the workplace it is clear to me that
we are facing the same challenges and that it is caused by similar root causes.

My concern is that programs,
rules and regulations alone
will not solve these problems

Good character is the inward motivation to do what is right,
according to the highest standards of behaviour in every situation

What I like about Character First as industrial psychologist is that good character transcends age, position, financial status, race religion, education, gender and personality.
It springs from the heart.
You see the true test of character is our reactions to the pressure of difficult situations
and it is what we do when we think no one will ever know

Building Character is really taking a new dimension in the workplace

Remember Character is not your personality,
it is not religion.
It is an inner sense of right and wrong.

Character is modeled and built on a moment-by-moment basis by the decisions we make.
Hire, promote and even discipline according to good character and competence.

Strive for a balance between the two aspects
