Why Character-Based Business Training is More Important Than Ever
In a world where technology and AI are rapidly changing the workforce, it’s becoming increasingly important to differentiate oneself from machines. That’s where character-based business training comes in.
According to Aristotle, character determines destiny. This means that our character plays a direct role in where we end up in life. The Character of Work, a company founded by David Carter, maps 54 character qualities that underpin the development of all skills against the 77 in-demand soft skills that employers feel are lacking in their applicants or workforce. By developing these character qualities, individuals can improve their soft skills and set themselves apart from others.
One of the key character qualities emphasized in the conversation between David and John is kindness. David shares a personal story from his childhood about learning to be a gentleman and how it taught him the value of being kind to others. He also emphasizes that being kind doesn’t take any more time than being rude or transactional, but it can lead to better results and stronger relationships with customers.
Ultimately, the conversation highlights the importance of character-based business training in creating successful and fulfilling careers. By focusing on developing character qualities, individuals can improve their soft skills and stand out in a world where machines are becoming increasingly prevalent.
